Weekend Roundup – On & Around Queen Anne

January 10th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

The second weekend of the New Year is upon us! Apologies if you were looking for the Weekend Roundup last Thursday, but I was down for the count for a few days. Anyway, I’m back up and while we’re all holding our breath for Sonics news, let’s not forget that the Seahawks are in the playoffs this weekend – and apparently the East coast did not get the message about time zones… the game is on at 10am local time, so if you’re a late sleeper, set your alarm!

Traffic Impacts:

  • Mercer: 9am-3pm, Monday, Jan 14 and running approximately 2 weeks, lane restrictions on eastbound Mercer for installation of new signal poles and mast arms at the intersection of Mercer and Fairview. Two eastbound lanes will remain open to traffic between Terry and Fairview.
  • Aurora Bridge: Bridge reduced to one lane in each direction 9pm-5am Sunday, Jan 13 – Thursday, Jan 17; Fremont Way N southbound on-ramp to the Aurora Bridge will be closed 9pm-5am Sunday, Jan 13 – Thursday, Jan 17
  • I-5 Reconstruction: ramps from Columbian Way to Southbound I-5, West Seattle, and 6th Ave S will be closed. Traffic from Columbian Way will only be able to access northbound I-5. Detours to southbound I-5 will utilize 15 Ave S to Georgetown.
