Mercer Corridor Project, SR 520 and Alaskan Way Viaduct Update
MCP
Road construction associated with the Mercer West project is substantially complete, and North Portal construction related to the SR-99 viaduct and tunnel, is ongoing. Please take into account the following as you route your way to and from Seattle Center, and allow extra time in your travels during this critical period of transition on our roadways.
 
If roads around the Mercer corridor are congested, consider other options to access I-5 and SR-99 using entry points south of Seattle Center, along 2nd Ave. and 5th Ave. Find information about alternate routes at:  www.seattle.gov/transportation/mercercorridor.htm.
 
Following are scheduled lane and road closures:
 
Monday, Aug. 22 through Mid-October:  The intersection at Taylor Ave. N. and Harrison St. will close for installation of a new electrical duct bank. Vehicles exiting 5th Ave. N. Garage on Harrison St. must turn right and leave the area using 5th Ave. N. 
 
Friday, Aug. 26 at 7pm to Monday, Aug. 29 at 5am:  Westbound Denny Way will close between Stewart St. and Fairview Ave. N. during underground utility work.
 
Until Further Notice: There will be weekday (6am-2pm) and Saturday lane closures north and southbound along Aurora Ave. N. on the Aurora Bridge during materials staging for the bridge painting project.

Now, into the Future:  Eastbound and westbound SR-520 across the new floating bridge is open for public access. The old SR-520 bridge will be closed in both  directions between Montlake Blvd and 92nd Ave.

Until SR-99 Tunnel opens to traffic:  6th Ave N is closed between Thomas and Republican streets. Harrison St. is closed between Aurora Ave. N and Broad St. Republican St. is closed between Aurora Ave. N and 6th Ave N.

Elliott Bay Seawall Project:  Construction work between Pine and Pike streets is underway. This work is scheduled to be complete in mid-2017. The Seattle Aquarium and other waterfront businesses will remain open and access will be maintained at all times.

Seawall construction between Pine and Pike Streets will remove on-street parking, trees and some sidewalks. Access to the Seattle Aquarium, Waterfront Park and businesses will be maintained.

As construction expands to the Colman dock area, ferry access for bicyclists and vehicles will shift to Yesler. Please follow the direction of flaggers and signage to access your destination.
