In case you’ve missed all the earlier coverage (archived here) … here’s your one-week warning: The next big closure related to the Spokane Street Viaduct Widening Project happens next Monday: SDOT will permanently close the 1st Avenue South onramp to the westbound West Seattle Bridge, so unless you get onto The Bridge from Beacon Hill, I-5, or 99, you’ll have to take the “low bridge.” This page on the city website lists not only that upcoming closure, but also the detour routes, and other ongoing restrictions. If you ride Metro, they’ve got a special section on their website collecting the information that’s been coming out over the past few months related to routes that’ll have to detour. Also note, that page points out three Fauntleroy ferry terminal-linked routes whose schedules will change next Monday: 116, 118, 119. The graphic above shows the future ramp configuration; the new 1st Avenue ramp is scheduled to open late next year.
