When will the viaduct be demolished?

Tags: viaduct

In 2011, crews demolished the southern mile of the viaduct, which accounted for nearly half the structure. The remaining portion of the viaduct will be demolished after the SR 99 tunnel opens to traffic, and then a new Alaskan Way street will be built in its place. The new Alaskan Way, which will connect over the railroad tracks to Elliott and Western avenues and to SR 99 near the stadiums, will provide several east-west connections to downtown.
