The closures around the Mercer Corridor construction project will likely affect some of our patients as they travel to SCCA for treatment. The Seattle Department of Transportation (DOT) says the next four confirmed weekend closures of the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer St. as part of the Mercer Corridor Project will begin on Fridays at 11 p.m. and end on Mondays at 5 a.m. for the following weekends:
- July 6 – 9
- July 13 – 16
- August 10 – 13
- August 24 -27
This work is dependent on weather and availability of materials and is subject to cancellation.
Detour route maps are available on the project website at: http://www.seattle.gov/Transportation/ppmp_mercer.htm. Detour routes shown will be signed on roadways and may be heavily used, particularly Denny Way both eastbound and westbound. Travelers are advised to consider alternate routes to their destinations such as SR 99 or alternate I-5 exits and entrances.
Please note that all South Lake Union businesses will remain open and will be accessible via alternative routes.
During these closures, the I-5 on-ramp at University St. will be concurrently closed to provide more efficient traffic flow around the closed Mercer St. exit lane. Fairview Ave. N will also be closed between Mercer St. and Valley St. and Mercer St. will be closed to through traffic between Westlake Ave. N and Fairview Ave. N. All detour routes will be clearly marked to support traffic flow around the closures.
Travelers are encouraged to carpool and use alternate modes of transportation. Transit information can be found at
