Seneca Street Off-ramp from Alaskan Way Viaduct
Closed this Afternoon for Repairs

SEATTLE -SDOT crews are closing the Seneca Street off-ramp from the northbound lanes of the Alaskan Way Viaduct this afternoon to install a temporary guardrail on the ramp. An estimated start time for the closure is 1 p.m. The crews expect they will need to keep the ramp closed from six to eight hours to complete the repair. Drivers may exit the viaduct at Western Avenue.

SDOT is positioning electronic “variable message signs” to inform drivers.

Earlier today a vehicle knocked off an estimated 30-foot portion of the metal guardrail which then fell onto Western Avenue, below the ramp. No injuries or other property damage were reported.
