Important Notification about Next PAAC Meeting

Hello Pedestrian Access Advisory Committee and Others,

On our agenda for our next Pedestrian Access Advisory Committee (PAAC) meeting on December 3 is an important message that we want to get out to people living with disabilities throughout the region. At 11:30 am, we will be discussing the Permanent Viaduct Closure (State Route 99) and what is called the “Period of Maximum Constraint,” also known as the “Seattle Squeeze.” Because public transit routes and other impacts may occur that affect our commutes, it is critical that we relay this important information. Please find the full agenda below.

If you have any questions regarding the closure of SR-99 or the “Seattle Squeeze,” please call SDOT at 684-ROAD or contact Meghan Shepard directly via email at

We hope to see you at our next meeting!
