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.
