For 3 weeks, no highway will escape the wrath of 'viadoom'

SEATTLE — Viadoom. Seattle Squeeze. Period of maximum constraint. Whatever the nickname, the upcoming Alaskan Way Viaduct closure means even longer travel times for Snohomish County commuters heading to and from Seattle.

The shutdown will push 90,000 cars onto surface streets and other highways each day, creating havoc.

“If you live in Snohomish County expect delays,” said Laura Newborn, a spokeswoman for Washington State Department of Transportation. “No highway will escape the wrath of the viaduct.”

Most commuters will be home when the viaduct officially closes at 10 p.m. Friday. Highway 99 will be shut down from the Battery Street Tunnel to South Spokane Street.

1. Amtrack Everett / Mukilteo

My wife's best friend lives in Mukilteo and takes the train to work every day. Better than sitting in gridlock. Also there are park and rides everywhere.

I have to go all over the place so buses don't work for me, but for someone going to Seattle and back it isn't that hard.

3. As a long time Seattle resident I don't believe 3 weeks is enough

Think about every other project this city has ever done.
