SDOT to reopen east-west roads in South Lake Union

The breakthrough of Bertha is a critical part of the changing face of South Lake Union.

The city is planning to reopen three east-west thoroughfares in the area that, in theory, will help alleviate traffic congestion.

Since World War II era, east-west roads like John Street, Thomas Street, and Harrison Street were all cut off by the jersey barrier of Highway 99.

Seattle Department of Transportation workers can now prepare to reopen those roads, because of the lid that will lay over the tunnel’s north portal.
