SEATTLE –Community Transit expects delays on its commuter service to downtown Seattle the week of Oct. 24-28 due to the nine-day closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Highway 99. The closure is scheduled begin at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21.
While Community Transit buses do not use the viaduct, added traffic on city streets is expected to delay trips through town by about five minutes. For buses that make several trips through Seattle, the delays could compound. Some later trips could see delays of 20 minutes or more. That is on top of any other delays such as accidents, protests, etc.
Community Transit recommends passengers consider taking earlier trips. Community Transit’s website has a trip planner that can help plan a trip any time of day, and all route schedules are available online so riders can see what times are available for their route. Riders may also call Customer Information at (425) 353-7433 for assistance planning a trip.
As conditions change during the closure, updated Rider Alerts will be posted on Community Transit’s website. Riders should sign up to receive electronic alerts via email or text about routes they regularly use.
The Washington State Department of Transportation website also has a webpage with details about the closure.
