The City of Seattle’s Yesler Bridge project in downtown starts May 23, and Metro will be revising how routes 27, 33, 304, 355 and RapidRide D Line will get around for up to two years. Information about the project is on SDOT’s Yesler Bridge project page.
Several other routes may experience temporary delays as traffic is slowed near the construction area.
Fifth Avenue routes that may be affected at times include: 252, 257, 268, 304, 311, 355 and routes operated by Community Transit and Pierce Transit.
Other routes will face temporary weekend reroutes during the course of the project, which we will post online in our Service Advisories as information is available.
By signing up for transit alerts, riders can receive email or text message notifications when bus service will be rerouted. Click on images or see PDFs here: 27_yesler 304_355X_yesler Yesler Bridge D line reroute
