SEATTLE — Construction on a new overpass near Seattle’s stadiums will require some State Route 99 drivers to change their overnight travel plans for the next three weeks.

Crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close southbound SR 99 through downtown Seattle and the left lane of northbound SR 99 through the Sodo district Monday through Thursday nights.

Three weeks of SR 99 closures: Jan. 14-17, Jan. 21-24 and Jan. 28-31

  • Crews will close all lanes of southbound SR 99 between the Battery Street Tunnel and Spokane Street Bridge, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday.
  • Crews will close the left lane of northbound SR 99 from South Holgate Street to South Royal Brougham Way from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday.

Drivers making southbound trips on closure nights should map out alternate routes and plan for delays and congestion in and near downtown Seattle. Drivers can check traffic conditions before they leave at www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic. Up-to-the-minute traffic information is also available via the voice-activated, 511 driver information line.
