Alaskan Way Viaduct reopens to traffic

Crews reopened the Alaskan Way Viaduct on Saturday night after inspection work was complete. But all northbound viaduct traffic must exit at Western Avenue until 5 a.m. Monday.

The viaduct was to be closed Saturday and Sunday for a semiannual inspection and maintenance. Work was completed ahead of schedule, and the viaduct will be open Sunday.

A section of Highway 99 north of downtown, including the Battery Street Tunnel, will remain closed while workers install a sewer line beneath Aurora Avenue North.

All lanes in both directions of Highway 99/Aurora Avenue North will be closed between the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel and Valley Street until 5 a.m. Monday. Mercer Street, Broad Street and the I-5 onramp and offramp at Mercer Street will remain open.
