'Fifty Shades Darker' Dampens Alaskan Way Viaduct Traffic

New, 1 comment

The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey is filming along Highway 99 on Friday

The Alaskan Way Viaduct survived it's Bertha-related shutdown but now it's facing a new foe: Hollywood.

"Fifty Shades Darker," the sequel to "Fifty Shades of Grey," is shooting in Seattle this weekend and filming is expected to slow down traffic along Highway 99 all weekend.

Filming will be conducted on the northbound section of the viaduct between South Atlantic Street and Western Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Traffic won’t stop, but it will be occasionally slowed to accommodate the filmmakers. The production will also film in the Pioneer Square neighborhood, SDOT says.

It's unclear what kind of scenes they're shooting but we can all agree that when you think of sexy, you think of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

At least we already know one point for our next Fifty Shades Seattle location map.
