Plan ahead for SR 99 closures this weekend

Posted on Jun 7 2018 8:46 AM

Drivers should allow for extra travel time this weekend as parts of SR 99 will close through Seattle. South of the stadiums, the SR 99 Connections Project will reduce both directions of SR 99 to one lane on Saturday, June 9, so crews can dig large sign foundations for the future SR 99 tunnel.

On Sunday, June 10, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon will close all lanes of northbound SR 99 between the West Seattle Bridge and Green Lake, along with off-ramps on Interstate 5 and SR 520. These closures will last until early afternoon.
