In preparation for the closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct on January 11, 2019, SDOT invites Seattle employers to join partners WSDOT, Metro, and Commute Seattle for an open house Q+A session on the Viaduct closure and the Waterfront Tunnel opening. All employers are ecouraged to attend this valuable information session.
The closue of the Viaduct on January 11 and the following three weeks without SR 99 connecting through downtown will significantly impact local and regional traffic patterns. The opening of the tunnel in late January will further change how peopler get around.
As an employer, this is the time to plan ahead for impacts to employee commutes as well as to freight and operations. This is your change to ask questions of the transportation agencies, learn about resources available to support you and employees through the upcoming challenges, and talk to your peers about strategies to maintain mobility during this time.
