Commuter Rtes: Stewart St. Closures Start 8/1

Aug 1, 2016, 07:54 AM

Stewart St. Lane Closures Expected to Delay Morning Service Commute Starting Monday, 8/1

Commuters Encouraged to Take Earlier Buses, Consider Other Routes

Remember back in April when Downtown Seattle construction closed lanes on Stewart St., resulting in buses caught in traffic back-ups as they tried to exit off I-5?

Well, those Stewart St. lane closures will be back starting Monday, August 1 (and continuing on and off throughout the month of August.)

Here is some information and tips to consider to help make your commute a little smoother:

  • Consider taking an earlier trip into Seattle during these dates.
  • If you usually take Routes 402, 405, 410, 415, 417, 422,424 or ST Routes 510, 511, 512, 513 (which all exit off Stewart St), consider taking Routes 412, 413, 416, 421, 425 or 435. Instead of sitting in traffic, these buses will travel farther south and exit off I-5 onto 5th Ave., traveling back north to Olive St just a block or so away from stops on Stewart St. The travel time of these buses could be less than the waiting time of sitting in traffic.

However you choose to commute, be safe and thanks in advance for your patience during these road closures!
