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. Please note, however, that the tunnel opening requires a three to four-week closure of the SR-99 Viaduct, which we expect will happen in November.
Work related to the 2nd Avenue bicycle track between Pike St. and Denny Way will conclude soon, along with the Denny Substation. The opening of John and Thomas streets will need to wait for a couple of years.
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 during the month of February:
6th Ave N is closed between Thomas and Republican streets. Republican St. is closed between Aurora Ave. N and 6th Ave N. Southbound SR-99/Aurora exit and entry to Harrison St. is now open!
Saturday, Feb. 24 at 11pm to 7am on Sunday, Feb. 25:  Mercer St. on-ramp to northbound I-5 will close during installation of ramp metering equipment. ***Please note that starting sometime in March, these I-5 on-ramps will be metered.
Sunday, March 4, 6am-11am: Hot Chocolate 5K/15K Run will close SR-99 between Elliott St and Woodland Park Zoo and lanes/streets around Seattle Center including 2nd Ave. N. between Thomas and Broad street, Mercer St. between Dexter Ave. N. and 5th Ave. N. and 5th between Mercer and Harrison. Check here for the course map: 
Saturday, March 24 and Sunday, March 25: SR-99 will close in both directions for its semi-annual inspection. Check back here for more detail closer to the closure dates. 
Waterfront Construction: Traffic on Alaskan Way S./Alaskan St. is shifted to beneath the Viaduct between S. King St. and Pike St. Traffic is shifted to the east side of Alaskan Way between Pike and Virginia streets.Vehicle, pedestrian and bike ferry access is affected, so heed to the directional signage. Seawall construction stretches from Pike to Virginia Street. Daytime and evening construction will occur. Sidewalk access will be restricted along the west side of Alaskan Way. Access to Seattle Aquarium, Waterfront Park and businesses will remain open.
