Two updates tonight on the latest state-highway projects in the West Seattle vicinity: First, for those following the I-5 Spokane St. Interchange Vicinity Special Bridge Repair project, replacing expansion joints – it is NOT scheduled for any more weekend ramp closures until the weekend of February 15-18.
One week after that, on February 25th, is the date set for work to start on the “Timber Bridge”/Spokane St. Overcrossing on Highway 99 south of the West Seattle Bridge.
As the project page points out, this section of highway was built as a temporary structure more than half a century ago. It will be rebuilt in two phases so that traffic can continue to get through: “Traffic will be reduced to two northbound lanes and one southbound lane between South Nevada Street and the West Seattle Bridge from Feb. 25 through June 2014,” says WSDOT.
Sorry, comment time is over.
