Alaskan Way Tunnel Project

                                      ......You think your project has problems!

The Project scope is to build a new State Route 99 corridor through Seattle that includes a two-mile-long tunnel beneath downtown Seattle; a mile-long stretch of new highway that connects to the south entrance of the tunnel; a new overpass at the south end of downtown that allows traffic to bypass train blockages near Seattle’s port terminal; demolition of the viaduct’s downtown waterfront section in 2016; and a new Alaskan Way surface street along the waterfront that connects SR 99 to downtown. 

Brian Nielsen is the Director of Engineering for the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program. He has worked for WSDOT for over 20 years developing and administering construction contracts for the agency. In the past ten years, Brian has been a major contributor to the development of WSDOT’s Design-Build contracting including leading the development of at least five Design-Build contracts and the SR 99 Tunnel Contract.
