Tunneling progress

Seattle Tunnel Partners has installed 44 rings and excavated 292 feet of the approximately 385 feet of tunnel to be completed beneath the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Crews continue to work around the clock to tunnel, build rings and perform ongoing machine maintenance.

Visit our tracking page to see a map showing Bertha’s progress. We will provide another update this afternoon.

Weekend events

Several events happening in Seattle today could affect traffic patterns. We encourage people to plan ahead. Visit our maps and resources page for trip-planning tools:

  • Color Run. The route snakes from Seattle Center down Fourth Avenue to Seneca Street
  • Mother’s Day! If you are making plans in downtown or Pioneer Square, take advantage of up to 4 hours of free parking at participating garages.
