Montlake Blvd weekend closure to detour past Agua Verde pick-up window

20120927-151243.jpg

A full closure of Montlake Boulevard is planned for this weekend to give crews room to work on the pedestrian bridge connecting UW Station to the main campus. Northbound traffic will be re-routed around the Triangle Parking Garage, while southbound traffic will divert all the way to Boat Street, west of UW Medical Center. The southbound detour will be especially aggravating, adding an extra mile and several traffic lights just to journey past Husky Stadium.

Survival tip? Avoid Montlake Blvd all together or… when crawling past Hec-Ed, call in a taco order from Agua Verde and pick it up half-way through the detour. Take-out menu here.
