Traffic alert: Viaduct closures this weekend

The Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed for most of Saturday and Sunday for its semi-annual inspection. Both decks of the viaduct will be closed from the Battery Street tunnel to Spokane Street from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. During the closure, WSDOT and SDOT will coordinate maintenance and preservation work. The Washington State Department of Transportation says to “expect increased congestion on all major north-south routes during the closure and plan accordingly – leave early, carpool, vanpool or take transit. Watch conditions at or get voice-activated driver information on 511.”

At least we'll get a clean scrubbed tunnel on Monday.
