From Monday, January 18th through mid-February, the median lanes of State Route 99 will be closed in both directions between the Aurora Bridge and just north of Mercer Street. The Washington State Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers and bus riders to:
- Allow plenty of extra time and expect additional congestion, especially during peak commute times, on SR 99 between the Aurora Bridge and downtown.
- If possible, consider leaving early, delaying your trip or telecommuting to avoid traveling during peak commute times in the morning and afternoon.
- If you must drive, know before you go and use WSDOT’s travel tools or visit SDOT’s travelers information page.
- Share a ride with King County Metro or in a car- or vanpool, or walk or ride a bicycle. If you ride the bus, please check King County Metro’s rider alerts or trip planning tools before you travel.
