Open house next week for nine-day Alaskan Way Viaduct closure

In a little more than two weeks, the majority of the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed for nine full days. This means those 110,000 vehicles that use the viaduct each day will be sent onto surface streets and I-5.

In one week, on October 12th, there will be an open house to learn more about the closure, commute options and how Highway 99 will look once it reopens. The open house will be held at Adams Elementary School (6110 28th Ave. NW) from 6 to 8 p.m. with comments by Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program Deputy Director Matt Preedy at 6:30 p.m.

If you can’t attend this open house, there is also one in West Seattle next Monday, October 10th from 6 to 8 p.m. at West Seattle High School (info here).

The viaduct closure starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21. The road will reopen at 5 a.m. on Monday, October 31st. During the closure, crews will begin demolition of the structure’s south end. More information can be found here.
