Beginning with Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) permanent closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct on January 11 and continuing over the next five years, Seattle is entering a new era of tough traffic. As we make important public and private investments to help keep pace with our fast-growing city, our bad traffic is going to be even more difficult for everyone. We need your help to get ready!

Please join the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and the Seattle Department of Transportation for an information session on the upcoming permanent closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct as WSDOT realigns SR 99, the new SR 99 tunnel that will open in early February, and the other upcoming challenges to our transportation system as we build a better city.
