Get ready for the closure of the NE 45th Street viaduct (June 14 – Sept. 10, 2010)

NE 45th St. Viaduct Wooden Timber Structure

The NE 45th Street viaduct’s existing west approach is nearing the end of its structural life and needs to be replaced to maintain a safe and efficient travel corridor. The replacement will require the closure of the NE 45th Street viaduct to all traffic, pedestrians and bicycles from June 14 – September 10, 2010. During the closure period, traffic will be rerouted on a clearly signed detour route that uses major arterial streets north and south of NE 45th Street. Please visit the project Web site for specifics on detour routes and options to bus, bike or walk around the area during the closure.

Join us for a Pre-Closure Open House

SDOT is hosting an Open House on Wednesday, June 9 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the University Heights Community Center (5031 University Way NE, Seattle, 98105).
