The Challenge For Business and Commuters

    In preparation for the grand opening of the new SR 99 tunnel, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will close SR 99 through downtown Seattle for approximately three weeks starting January 11, 2019, resulting in travel changes for commuters traveling to and through downtown, causing an anticipated total of six weeks of travel disruption. Increased travel times are expected on all Seattle-area freeways, highways and surface streets, particularly during peak commute times.
