Default Queen Anne to Renton Routes

I'm at buying a place on the edge of Queen Anne with good access to 99. I need to commute to Renton. Currently I'm in another neighborhood and the commute is easy - a straight shot down I-5. I'm not sure whether it is best coming from Queen Anne, to cut through the city and get on I-5, or take 99 and then cross over to Renton.

Any suggestions? Thanks!!

If I had good access to use the Battery Street tunnel, I probably would try to use Hwy 99 to Georgetown. Then cut across Michigan Street and use that big on-ramp at Bailey Street to I-5.

Of course, if you're squeamish about being on the Alaskan Way Viaduct when the "big one" hits, then it's probably worth the extra minutes it would take to work yourself over to the Fairview and Mercer ramp. I'm thinking that I-5 through downtown will be much more congested than the Battery Street tunnel and the viaduct will be, though.

Let's see what others who might actually make a similar commute will say.
