Expect Closures

Expect closures along the AWV during Halloween weekend

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between South Spokane Street and the north end of the Battery Street Tunnel from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on both Saturday, Oct. 31 and Sunday, Nov. 1.

It is highly recommended that commuters prepare for additional congestion as a result of this closure. Closing the Alaskan Way Viaduct will allow crews to thoroughly inspect the structure, as is done every spring and fall. Read this document to get a better idea of how construction crews are working to make the viaduct safe and open for drivers until the tunnel project is complete.
