Three traffic signals out on Alaskan Way
Traffic signals at three intersections on Alaskan Way – South Main Street, Yesler Way and Columbia Street – have been shut off due to utility relocation associated with the SR 99 Tunnel Project. The signal outages are an extension of a planned a temporary power outage that occurred over the weekend.
Seattle Police officers will direct traffic at Yesler Way and Columbia Street until 7 p.m. Monday, May 19; South Main Street is functioning as an all-way stop. The intersections will function as all-way stops from 7 p.m. until power is restored at 4 a.m. Tuesday, May 20. Additional signals may be shut off overnight as crews continue their work, and by law should be treated as all-way stops.
