Traffic alert: events, road closures this weekend

Weekend events will bring road closures or traffic congestion to the area Saturday and Sunday, so here’s a heads-up.

At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, the Seafair Torchlight Run will close northbound SR 99 between the West Seattle Bridge and the Battery Street Tunnel. When the run is over, the stretch between South Royal Brougham Way and the Battery Street Tunnel will reopen, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The portion of northbound SR 99 between the West Seattle Bridge and South Royal Brougham Way will remain closed until 5 a.m. Monday for construction.

Then, at 7:30 p.m., the Seafair Torchlight Parade begins and travels along several downtown streets, so be prepared for traffic congestion throughout the area.

At 1:10 p.m. Sunday, the Mariners host the Kansas City Royals at Safeco Field, so be prepared for the congestion that can bring.

Finally, from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday, southbound SR 99 will close between the Battery Street Tunnel and West Seattle Bridgefor Alaskan Way Viaduct reinforcement work.
