Weekend Roundup – On & Around Queen Anne

November 8th, 2012 by Laura Fonda

Before we get to the weekend, Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away! We’ll be putting together a Thanksgiving Roundup and, shortly following, a Holiday Roundup, so if you have any events you’d like us to include, just let us know.

And, on to the weekend… Traffic will be tricky around Uptown/Lower Queen Anne this weekend with two major headliners at the Key – Leonard Cohen on Friday and Neil Young on Saturday. The PNB Premier is also Saturday night, so fair warning on parking and traffic. Parking will be impacted, and there will likely be lots of drivers unfamiliar with the area, so keep an eye out for them!

Midweek Heads-Up: the Key Arena hosts Rush on Tuesday, Nov 13 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Thursday, Nov 15

Weekend Traffic Impacts:
Aurora Bridge: Bridge reduced to one lane in each direction and the Fremont Way N southbound on-ramp to the Aurora Bridge will be closed, Sunday through Thursday nights through mid-December.
