Weekend Traffic: Huskies, Seahawks and Sounders this weekend. Oprah Winfrey will be in Seattle as well.

After a weekend with no SODO stadium games, this weekend there will be several. Husky Football is Saturday night, the Seahawks play Sunday afternoon, and the Sounders play Monday night.

Thousands of people will attend Oprah’s The Life you Want Weekend at the Key Arena on Friday and Saturday.  Sunday morning, runners will participate in the Mustache Dache at Magnuson Park .

Here is a list of events that may affect traffic this weekend:

Mercer Corridor Construction

Mercer Street and Fifth Avenue North will both be down to one lane during off- peak hours on Friday. Taylor Avenue will be fully closed between Mercer and Roy streets. On Friday night there will be a full closure of Mercer Street between Ninth Avenue North and Dexter Avenue North from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. on Sunday.

Elliott Bay Seawall Construction

Construction on the Elliott Bay Seawall project continues seven days a week along the central waterfront. Remember, the ferry access entry point is now just south of Madison Street.
