Spokane Street Viaduct Widening Project: 2 quick updates

July 10, 2012 at 4:41 pm | In Spokane St. Viaduct project, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

After last weekend’s westbound closure of the westbound Spokane Street Viaduct, we’ve been asked “how many more?” so we sent the question to SDOT. That closure should be the LAST daytime closure for the SSV Widening Project, says SDOT spokesperson Paul Elliott, when we asked today how many more such closures are ahead in the project’s final weeks: “As to major closures, we have none planned. We will do everything we can to avoid any further daytime closures.” He also says they’re still on track to have the entire project done by summer’s end – early September – “barring unforeseen challenges.” (In case you missed it, we toured the project zone recently for a closer look at what the last phase of work involves – see that story here.)

  1. Are there any improvements planned for bikers to commute from WS to the Eastside as part of this initiative? I’m new to the area and hope to commute this summer on bike and avoid the bridge.
