Reminder - Series of Alaskan Way Lane Closures Near Colman Dock
People driving to and from Colman Dock during the next several weeks will need to give themselves extra time to get to and from the terminal. Alaskan Way South has been reduced to one lane in each direction between South Jackson and Dearborn streets which started at 4 a.m. on Friday, June 14 until the end of viaduct demolition work this summer. The lane reduction will extend north as work progresses. The narrower roadway gives contractor crews demolishing the Alaskan Way Viaduct the necessary room to tear down this section of the viaduct.

There will also be separate overnight full closure of Alaskan Way South near Colman Dock on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20. Alaskan Way South will be closed to all traffic between Yesler Way and Marion Street both nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. This closure will allow construction crews to set the temporary Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge across Alaskan Way along Columbia Street.

We appreciate your continued patience during this important project. If you have additional questions about the road closure, or demolition of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct, email viaduct@wsdot.wa.gov or call 1-888-AWV-LINE (298-5463). Customers can also sign-up to receive email updates about the project.
