Weekend Roundup – On & Around Queen Anne

November 15th, 2012 by Laura Fonda

A reminder about the upcoming holidays – if you have any holiday events, Queen Anne Food Bank drives, or other charitable drives, just let us know.

Traffic-wise, it’s fairly quiet this weekend save for the Sounders game on Sunday and the 520 bridge weekend closure. Event-wise, there are quite a few multi-day events, including a couple of holiday craft shows, and the first of the holiday-themed road races is on Saturday at Green Lake.

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 (9am-5am) through mid-December
520 Bridge: closed 11pm Friday through 5am Monday
