Seattle weekend traffic: A pretty slow week

What’s blocking up traffic this weekend—and how to ride transit to it (or around it)

Another weekend, another list of things that could disrupt getting around, although this week there’s not a whole lot to gum up the works. At least, not that’s been planned in advance.

We’ve combed through the alerts and advisories from both the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and the Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to deliver transit-friendly solutions for your weekend outings.

Some of this weekend’s advisories—and transit-oriented alternate routes to events—are listed below.

Sports: What sports?

Soccer is done. Football is done. It’ll be a second until baseball returns. If something is mucking up traffic in Sodo, it’s not sports.

Road closures, bus reroutes, and more

Winter ferry schedules kick in this Sunday.

The left lane in both directions of the Montlake Bridge will be closed from 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturday.

2nd Avenue will be closed between Pike and Union on Saturday and Sunday for crane work.

Periodic lane closures are happening on Denny between Stewart and Minor and on First Avenue South between Jackson and Yesler.

Other events

This is a super slow weekend. The only event SDOT is advising us about is a Northwest Remodeling Expo Friday through Sunday at the Washington State Convention Center. Multiple buses run through the Convention Station, including Metro routes 41 74, 101, 102, 150, and 255, plus Sound Transit 550. Outside the tunnel, westbound 7, 10, 43, 47, 49, and 150 take you a block away.

Of course, there are a million other things to do this weekend—too many to give transit directions to each. But without any singular mega-events, or events causing closures, clogging things up, getting to those should be a little easier.
