The 12 King County Metro buses that take the viaduct will be detoured to surface streets (PDF map of detours). The King County Metro website has additional information.

For individual drivers WSDOT has created a commute alternatives checklist (PDF) that provides travel options. WSDOT recognizes that closing a major highway will have substantial traffic impacts in the region, and is requesting employers and the public’s help in planning ahead.

Designated freight routes can be found here.
