Construction work to upgrade the north end of Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct, including major renovations to the Battery Street Tunnel will be discussed at an open house scheduled for 5:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday Oct. 16) at the Mountaineers Building, 300 Third Ave. W., Seattle. The tunnel work begins this fall and will result in closures on weekday evenings and up to two weekends each month. When completed, the short on- and off-ramps at south end of the tunnel will be closed to general traffic and converted to emergency access ramps.
This evening's meeting will touch on what this means for Belltown as well as information on the "Mercer mess" which no one is quite agreed on yet.
