TRAFFIC ALERT: SR 99 Viaduct Closure

Jan 11Mar 01

Event Dates

  • Fri Jan 11 12:00 AM
  • Fri Mar 01 12:00 AM

Beginning Jan. 11, 2019 into February, the disruption from the closure of SR 99 will affect traffic in Seattle.  

Please adjust your travel plans accordingly for these Jan & Feb 2019 performances:

Alonzo King LINES Ballet — Fri, Jan 11 &  Sat, Jan 12
Jeremy Denk — Tues, Jan 15
Tanya Tagaq — Fri, Feb 8
Mark Morris Dance Group — Thurs, Feb 21 through Sat, Feb 23

When the new SR 99 tunnel is ready to open, travelers will experience the longest major highway closure in the Puget Sound Region.

WSDOT will need to close SR 99 through downtown Seattle for approximately three weeks to realign the highway into the tunnel.

During this closure both the viaduct and the tunnel will be closed. Additional ramp closures mean up to six weeks of traffic disruption.

This disruption is unavoidable due to the large amount of work involved in re-aligning SR 99 with the new tunnel.
