Getting to your appointment on time during the Seattle Squeeze

With the closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct on January 11, 2019, and other construction projects, we can expect longer travel times and more traffic congestion throughout the Puget Sound region.

Please plan ahead to arrive for your appointment on time. This is the best way to help us keep on schedule for you and all other patients.

We also understand that there may be unavoidable traffic delays. If you arrive late, be assured that we will assist you at the clinic. If possible, we will work you into the schedule on the same day.

For more information about appointments during this time, call the UW Medicine Contact Center at 206.520.5000, or visit  for more information about getting around during the Seattle Squeeze.
