ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Information from WSDOT

It's March and that means it's time for a weekend-long inspection of the State Route 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct. Every March and October, the Washington State Department of Transportation closes SR 99 through Seattle so engineers can conduct a thorough inspection and make sure the viaduct remains safe for everyday driving.

On Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5, the viaduct will close in both directions between South Spokane Street and the north end of the Battery Street Tunnel from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

On Sunday, March 5, the annual Hot Chocolate Run will also extend the closure north of the Battery Street Tunnel.

Drivers through Seattle should plan ahead and be prepared for additional congestion.
