Lane Closure on Battery Street at Denny Way Thursday

SEATTLE—Thursday, October 22, a Seattle Department of Transportation crew will make emergency repairs to the electrical system above the Battery Street Tunnel in preparation for work which will be take place in the tunnel over the weekend.  The tunnel will be closed Saturday and Sunday when the  SR99 Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed for its semi-annual inspection.  In order to accomplish the work, the crew will close the right lane northbound on Battery Street just south of Denny Way from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The lane closure will shift all northbound traffic into the single left lane, and may result in a slight delay for vehicles merging onto Denny Way or crossing Denny to enter SR99/Aurora Avenue N.   Motorists should plan accordingly.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
