Posted on May 16 2014 2:50 PM

Drivers should plan for possible congestion on southbound State Route 99 near the stadiums on Saturday.

The southbound SR 99 off-ramp to South Atlantic Street will be closed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 17. The right lane of southbound 99 will also be closed during this time between South King and South Atlantic streets. The lane and the exit will reopen at least two hours before the 7 p.m. Sounders game at CenturyLink Field.

During the closure, Seattle Tunnel Partners’ crews will continue preparing to reroute the temporary section of SR 99 that bypasses the tunnel construction zone near the stadiums. Crews are rerouting this section of SR 99 to make room for construction of permanent lanes and ramps into and out of the new SR 99 tunnel.
