Traffic volumes around the Seattle area will be increasing starting January 11, 2019 and continuing for approximately three weeks into early February. This is due to the Viaduct closing to transition to the waterfront tunnel and a number of other street closures and nearby construction projects that are ongoing during this time. Unfortunately, this is not a short-term issue and traffic around our facilities will be a problem for the next several years as scheduled construction projects in the neighborhood cause street closures and traffic delays.
If you are coming to SCCA for an appointment we recommend that you check traffic conditions a few hours before your scheduled appointment and plan accordingly for potential travel delays. Online resources like Google Maps or Waze can help provide you with an estimate of travel time and suggested routes to get around the worst congestion. We also recommend checking out resources like Seattletraffic.org to help with your planning.
To help you get around, we have a free shuttle between our main locations (South Lake Union clinic, UW Medical Center, and Seattle Children's) as well as shuttles to Pete Gross House and SCCA House. Shuttle hours are limited. Please check the shuttle schedule for the hours of operation. In addition we have volunteer drivers to help get to and from the airport.
We’ve also gathered information about local transit and transportation assistance for cancer patients.
