Transportation Updates
What you need to know to avoid traffic tie-ups on your way to and from Seattle Center.
Mercer Corridor Project
As we enter a new year, we can look forward to the completion and opening of the SR-99 Tunnel by Thanksgiving 2018. With it comes the reknitting of Harrison St. across Aurora, creating a new connection between Seattle Center and South Lake Union. The 2nd Avenue bicycle track between Pike St. and Denny Way will be complete, along with the Denny Substation.
Although the opening of John and Thomas streets will need to wait for a couple of year, we should experience some easing of traffic this year in the corridors around Seattle Center. Please note, however, the opening of the SR-99 Tunnel requires a three to four week closure of the SR-99 Viaduct, which we expect will happen in November.
Consider all transportation options as you route your way to and from Seattle Center. Several Metro bus routes serve the Center, and Seattle Center Monorail provides a speedy connection between Seattle Center and the Sound Transit/Metro Station at Westlake. Here is what to expect during the month of January:
6th Ave N is closed between Thomas and Republican streets. Republican St. is closed between Aurora Ave. N and 6th Ave N. Southbound SR-99/Aurora exit and entry to Harrison St. is now open!
Tuesday, Jan. 2 to Wednesday, Jan. 31, 9am to 3pm: Crews will close the right westbound curb lane and adjacent sidewalk on Denny Way between Stewart St. and Minor Ave. N. during concrete work and landscaping improvements. 
Saturday, Jan. 13, 6am-10am:  SR-99 is closed in both directions through the Battery Street Tunnel in downtown Seattle. Drivers heading north will exit at Western Avenue, and those headed south with exit at Denny Way.
Saturday, Jan. 20, 10am-2pm: Power to the Polls: Anniversary of the Womxn's March on Seattle will close streets along the march route from Cal Anderson Park to Seattle Center including Pine St. to 4th Ave. to Cedar St. to 5th Ave. N. to Harrison St.    
Waterfront Construction: Traffic on Alaskan Way S./Alaskan St. is shifted to beneath the Viaduct between S. King St. and Pike St. Traffic is shifted to the east side of Alaskan Way between Pike and Virginia streets.Vehicle, pedestrian and bike ferry access is affected, so heed to the directional signage. Seawall construction stretches from Pike to Virginia Street. Daytime and evening construction will occur. Sidewalk access will be restricted along the west side of Alaskan Way. Access to Seattle Aquarium, Waterfront Park and businesses will remain open.
