Drivers should plan for delays when the First Avenue South off-ramp from eastbound lanes of the Spokane Street Viaduct is reduced to one lane, starting March 22, for up to five months.
On surface streets, First Avenue South, recently reduced to one lane for southbound traffic, will also be restricted to one lane for northbound traffic from Spokane to Hanford streets, also for up to five months.
The exception is the weekend of March 27-28, when the Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed for inspection. During that weekend, two lanes on the ramp and northbound First Avenue will be open to improve access to downtown Seattle.
