Upcoming Lane Closures for Alaskan Way Viaduct Maintenance Work

SEATTLE—SDOT crews plan to perform maintenance work on the Alaskan Way Viaduct this weekend and through next week.

The northbound lanes of the Battery Street Tunnel will be closed from 10 p.m. Saturday, November 14 to 6 a.m. Sunday, November 15. Northbound traffic on the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be directed off the viaduct at the Western Avenue off-ramp. During this time SDOT crews will work on the fire suppression system in the tunnel on behalf of WSDOT.

The center, northbound lane on the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed from Virginia Street to the Western Avenue off-ramp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday to Wednesday, November 16 to18. SDOT crews will replace a crash cushion that was damaged in a recent vehicle accident.

The southbound lanes of the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. weekdays from Tuesday, November 17 to Tuesday, November 20, from Denny Way through the Battery Street Tunnel to just south of the Elliott Avenue on-ramp. During this time SDOT crews will complete repairs to railings that were damaged by recent vehicle accidents.

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.
