DKS analyzed the traffic impact on the first Monday morning commute with the Alaska Way Viaduct closure in effect in Seattle. The highway system was truly tested; with heavier traffic all around Seattle as more people commuted on Monday in comparison to the closure’s first day last Friday. DKS’ review only includes the live traffic during peak hours, not the specific travel times across the area. Updates on the traffic during the closure will be recorded every morning and evening on the Twitter handle @DKSassociates.
