Update: SDOT confirms 1st Av. S. bridge exit reopened early

June 20, 2012 at 12:16 pm | In Spokane St. Viaduct project, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

If you have already been on the eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct this morning, you know this already, but SDOT has now confirmed it – the 1st Avenue South offramp reopened this morning, a day earlier than anticipated, because the contractor finished the work that had required one offramp to be closed continuously for the past several weeks. This also means an end to bus rerouting, too, as Metro has just confirmed in an advisory. We just updated our list of scheduled closures for the rest of the week, which include Saturday’s 5 am-3:30 pm closure of the northbound Alaskan Way Viaduct for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.

  1. Is it too much to ask of SDOT that they tell us commuters what we should expect on a given day? Love that they got the ramp open earlier, hate that the only way I found out was by driving past it this morning while being confused by the lane configuration.

    Is there any communication of what’s next for lane shifts? How long until we’ve got the eastbound lanes in their final configuration now that refinishing work is done? Project site was of course completely unhelpful on this.
