ROADS/BRIDGES: Alaskan Way Viaduct removal in Seattle on track for early 2019

Demolition is on schedule as WSDOT prepares to open the S.R. 99 tunnel

As the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) prepares to open the new S.R. 99 tunnel, demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct is slated for early 2019 in Seattle.

WSDOT launched an online open house Thursday to show the public what the work will look like and start allowing comment. A similar demolition happened in 2011 when the department removed a southern mile of the viaduct.

WSDOT will work with the contractor to protect people and the nearby buildings, minimizing traffic delays as much as possible. The agency will move Alaskan Way to the west of the viaduct before the new tunnel opens. Traffic will flow along the waterfront before the demolition begins.
