Posted on Feb 25 2013 4:19 PM

Crews will close the State Route 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct this weekend for its semiannual inspection.

Saturday, March 2

  • - Both directions of SR 99 between Denny Way and South Spokane Street will be closed 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
  • - This section of SR 99 will reopen two hours before the start of Saturday’s Seattle Sounders match to give fans plenty of time to reach the stadium; however, drivers should expect increased congestion in and near downtown Seattle during these closures and plan accordingly.


Sunday, March 3

  • - In addition to the viaduct inspection closure, SR 99/Aurora Avenue North will be closed 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday between Bell Street and North 46th Street for the Hot Chocolate 15/5k run.
