Weekend Roundup – On & Around Queen Anne

Posted on July 3rd, 2013 by Sara Willy

Happy 4th of July weekend! Perfect weather for the holiday weekend and plenty going on, whether you venture over to Gas Works or South Lake Union to watch the fireworks (or find a spot on Upper Queen Anne for the evening), or are looking for other fun outdoor activities. However, keep in mind there’s a full weekend closure of Mercer St between 5th Ave N and Dexter, and 99 starting at Valley St and running through the Battery St Tunnel.


  • Mercer: closure – 11pm, Friday, July 5 through 5am, Monday, July 8. Mercer closed pedestrians between 5th Ave N and Dexter Ave; 99 closed between Valley St and south end of Battery St Tunnel. Why? Demolition of the east side of the 99 bridge over Mercer.
