The Seattle area could battle some of the worst traffic it’s ever seen during the about three-week period after the Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed, and the SR 99 tunnel is opened.
Here’s how KING 5 will help you get through what the city is calling the “Seattle Squeeze.”
KING 5 Mornings will air beginning at 4 a.m. throughout the closure. Our crews will be live across the region showing current commute conditions – for cars, buses, and trains.
You can also stream the newscast from your computer on KING5.com or from our free mobile app.
The KING 5 app has a designated section for all viaduct closure information -- just look for the “Tunnel Effects” tile. And be sure to sign up for push notifications for real-time updates right on your phone. Don't miss the "Tunnel Effects" section on KING5.com as well.
Join our “Seattle Tunnel Traffic” Facebook group to discuss all things closure related and get your specific questions answered by our reporters. If you’re missing the viaduct's iconic views, check out some of the great photos and videos some of the group members have posted of their last rides.
