Road Construction & Seattle Center
SR 520, I-90 and Alaskan Way Viaduct Update
Mercer Corridor Project
Road construction associated with the Mercer West project is substantially complete, and North Portal construction related to the SR-99 viaduct and tunnel, is ongoing. The tunnel boring machine reached the north end of the SR-99 tunnel in April and is being disassembled. The tunnel is expected to open in early 2019.
 
Please consider all transportation options as you route your way to and from Seattle Center. Several Metro bus routes serve the Center, and Seattle Center Monorail provides a speedy connection between Seattle Center and the Sound Transit/Metro Station at Westlake. If driving, please allow extra time in your travels during this critical period of transition on our roadways. If roads around the Mercer corridor are congested, consider other options to access I-5 and SR-99 using entry points south of Seattle Center, along 2nd Ave. and 5th Ave.
