Filling in Broad Street

Looking northeast at what remains of Broad Street in Seattle where crews are filling in the section of the street that went under the SR 99/Aurora Avenue North overpass. Crews will demolish the overpass and build a new section of State Route 99/Aurora Avenue North on top of the fill during a four-day closure of the highway from 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27. Completing this work paves the way for construction of future ramp and roadway connections at the SR 99 tunnel’s north portal.
