Seattle area travel changes beginning January 2019
Interested in carpooling?
We’ve made Facebook events, one for each day of the week, which will act as online rideshare boards. Post your need for a ride, your empty spaces in your car, or just a general interest in carpooling, don’t forget to say when you will be traveling and from what part of town you are coming!
It’s time to get ready –
Starting January 11, 2019, the Puget Sound region will experience the longest closure of a major highway when WSDOT closes the Alaskan Way Viaduct to complete the work needed to open the SR 99 tunnel three weeks later. Everyone traveling in the region will be impacted.
What you can do to plan and prepare:
- Stay informed and sign up for alerts – seattle.gov/traffic
- Change your commute – tools at kingcounty.gov/getready
- Whenever possible, don’t drive alone.
- Leave extra time.
- Be safe, flexible, creative and patient
- If you are late, you may still join your class
- If you find yourself stuck in traffic that just won’t move and you can’t make it to class, call or email us that same day and we will prorate your tuition (giving you future tuition credit) up to two classes.
HERE is a fact sheet to share and help prepare for the Seattle Squeeze.
