Alaskan Way Construction

Waterfront Seattle is building a new Alaskan Way in the footprint of the former viaduct. Our work zones will span from S King to Pike Street. Activities include establishing work zones, mobilizing equipment, potholing work, breaking pavement and excavation for utility installation. For more information, view the Alaskan Way Construction Flyer.

Alaskan Way traffic will shift to the east, in the footprint of the former viaduct, onto the newly rebuilt roadway between S King and Columbia streets. This shift will take place on December 11th, 2020. For more information, view the flyer and FAQs. This traffic switch also includes a traffic revision coming to S Washington St, check out our S Washington St flyer for more information.

Traffic switch materials are also available in Chinese and Spanish.
