This weekend features another closure of the ramps connecting Mercer with I-5, but it will also have one added twist.
SDOT crews will close the stretch of Broad Street between Westlake and 9th Avenue North simultaneously as the Mercer closure. That means Broad will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.
This means that Denny Way will be taking a lot of the extra traffic for those trying to go to Seattle Center, Queen Anne, downtown or just through SLU. Signs for the detours will be out.
The closure of Broad will go along with the usual closures that accompany the ramps shutting down. Those are Mercer between Westlake and Fairview, and Fairview between Mercer and Valley.
Get ready for another interesting traffic weekend in the area.
