Seneca Street Off-ramp from Alaskan Way Viaduct is Now Open

SEATTLE -SDOT crews opened the Seneca Street off-ramp from the northbound lanes of the Alaskan Way Viaduct at approximately 3:45 p.m. today. The ramp was closed shortly after 1 p.m. to allow SDOT crews to install a temporary guardrail. The repairs were completed sooner than expected, in time for the evening peak traffic period.

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