Drivers Beware! Alaskan Way viaduct closed this weekend!

The Alaskan Way viaduct will be closed from 6 am to 6 pm both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  The DOT is conducting it’s semi-annual inspection.  This will include both decks between Battery Street and Spokane Street.  According to the WSDOT: 

During the closure, Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and city of Seattle crews will inspect the structure for settlement and perform routine maintenance and preservation work such as: Applying a protective covering to exposed rebar; servicing drainage systems and traffic cameras; washing the walls of the Battery Street Tunnel and inspecting its lighting and ventilation systems; and restriping the roadway.

WSDOT will release preliminary inspection results by Friday, Oct. 22.

Those of us around Lake Union use the viaduct often so be aware and be careful this weekend!
