SEATTLE — There are big changes in the way drivers get on and off State Route 99 in Seattle.
Entrances and exits are located to the north of the tunnel near the Space Needle and to the south near the stadiums.
Driving north on SR 99
Tunnel on-ramp: South Royal Brougham Way and Frontage Road in SODO
Tunnel off-ramp: Dexter Avenue North and Republican Street; turn left to get to Mercer Street and I-5 in South Lake Union
Be aware: The northbound SR 99 off-ramp to the stadium district is still under construction and won't be ready for about another week or two. If you want to get off SR 99 before the tunnel, you will need to do so at Spokane Street.
When the off-ramp to SODO does open, it will drop drivers at Alaskan Way and South Dearborn Street.
