Transportation Updates
What you need to know to avoid traffic tie-ups on your way to and from Seattle Center.
Mercer Corridor Project
There’s light at the end of the SR-99 Tunnel. It will open by Thanksgiving this year. With it comes the reknitting of Harrison St. across Aurora Avenue, creating a new connection between Seattle Center and South Lake Union. The opening of John and Thomas streets will need to wait for a couple years. Please note that the tunnel opening requires a three to four-week closure of the SR-99 Viaduct, which we expect will happen in October or November.
 
To avoid traffic slowdowns, 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. Here is what to expect in the upcoming weeks:
