    City and County Councilmembers encourage residents to attend this month’s SR 99 open house meetings

    Seattle – Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, Chair of the Transportation Committee, and King County Councilmember Joe McDermott, Chair of the King County Ferry District, encourage residents likely to be affected by the nine-day closure (October 21-31) of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct attend one of this month’s open houses hosted with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

    “The City and County have been working closely with the State, Port of Seattle, Metro Transit and even the Coast Guard to make sure there are no ‘car-mageddons’ in Seattle because of this temporary closure,” said City Councilmember Rasmussen.    

    King County Councilmember Joe McDermott added, “These open houses are an opportunity for commuters to learn about the transit alternatives that will help get them to and from downtown and ease congestion. Getting people into alternative modes of transportation will help all commuters during these nine days.” 

    Two open house meetings will provide the public with information about the upcoming SR 99 nine-day closure (Oct. 21 – 31), commute options during the closure and how SR 99 will change for drivers when it re-opens.
