If you plan on driving to and from Emerald City Comicon this weekend, be aware of several traffic closures:
- An I-90 bridge closure is scheduled over the weekend - all westbound lanes will be closed Friday night through early Monday.
- The Alaskan Way Viaduct will be shut down.
- The Sound Transit's light rail service will not be serving downtown. The northern part will be closed for system upgrades Saturday and Sunday. Operation between Sea-Tac/Airport Station and Mount Baker will continue. A free shuttle will take riders from Mount Baker through the downtown tunnel, but it won't serve Beacon Hill or SODO stations.
Washington State Dept of Transportation justified the closures because fans are expected to "trickle in" versus descending en masse. But - I'm pretty sure en masse is exactly what we'll look like.
