WSDOT Traffic Advisory
Travelers should plan for street closures this weekend near the SODO stadiums in Seattle.
Construction crews will close sections of S. Royal Brougham Way and Alaskan Way S. to install utilities for the project to replace the south end of the State Route 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct between S. Holgate and S. King streets.
Mariners fans who plan to attend Saturday’s Safeco Field tribute for late play-by-play announcer Dave Niehaus should plan to arrive early and allow extra time.
Nov. 12-15 weekend closures
• Northbound Alaskan Way S. will be closed between S. Atlantic Street and S. King Street from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. (A single lane of southbound Alaskan Way S. will remain open, but no left-turns will be permitted onto S. Royal Brougham Way.
