***CANCELED*** Southbound SR 99/Aurora Avenue North closure on Sunday, Feb. 5

Posted on Feb 1 2017 11:36 AM
Feb. 2 update: A planned closure of southbound SR 99 on Sunday, Feb. 5 has been canceled due to anticipated weather. The closure will be rescheduled for a later date. The original notice is below.
 
Drivers traveling southbound on State Route 99/Aurora Avenue North this Sunday should be prepared for a closure of a half-mile stretch between Valley Street and the Battery Street Tunnel. The closure will allow contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation to re-stripe and reopen Harrison Street west of Aurora Avenue North. 
 
When the work is complete, drivers traveling southbound on SR 99/Aurora Avenue North will be able to turn right onto Harrison Street as well as turn right from Harrison Street onto the southbound highway. This block of Harrison Street was closed for tunnel-related work, which is now complete. 
 
This weekend’s work is weather-dependent and could be rescheduled in the event of rain.
