Schedule

The Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program is led by the Washington State Department of Transportation in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, King County, the City of Seattle and the Port of Seattle. Each jurisdiction is responsible for its own projects’ management, environmental work, design and construction.
 
The state is responsible for leading or funding 31 of the projects that will work together to reshape the SR 99 corridor. Construction on our first project started in 2007, when crews stabilized four viaduct columns that settled following the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake. Since then, 21 projects that are led or funded by the state have been completed, with several more in progress or set to break ground soon.

Seattle Tunnel Partners' schedule
Our contractor, Seattle Tunnel Partners, is responsible for designing and building the SR 99 tunnel. Our contract with STP includes a number of elements. In addition to boring the tunnel and building the highway within it, STP is responsible for building highway ramps and other connections at the north and south ends of the tunnel. They are also constructing buildings at each tunnel portal to house lighting, ventilation and other systems needed to operate the tunnel.
 
Summary versions of STP's previous monthly schedules are posted below. In spring 2016 WSDOT did not post STP schedules while STP was updating its baseline schedule based on recent tunneling progress.
