Final day for first closure in Spokane St. Interchange Project, and what’s next

Not that we expect the roads to be terribly busy this afternoon but – one more reminder, the closure of the ramps to the West Seattle Bridge from southbound I-5 and Columbian Way (Beacon Hill) is scheduled to continue until early tomorrow morning, in the first weekend of WSDOT’s I-5/Spokane Street Interchange Vicinity Special Bridge Repair project. Above, this weekend’s work zone, as photographed Saturday by West Seattle’s Long Bach Nguyen. This is a repair project focused on more than 30 “expansion joints” in the elevated structures in the vicinity of the interchange. Each of the 11 planned weekends of work will include a different configuration of ramp or lane closures; next weekend – 10 pm Friday 1/11 through 5 am Monday 1/14 – will NOT include an I-5 ramp, only the Beacon Hill ramp (see the date-stamped map of the project here). The project is scheduled to continue into April.

    Yes, very nice photo!
    How did you get such a bird’s-eye view, Long?

    M, Long is a pilot, and takes these amazing images from a plane.

    Thank you WSDOT. Those expansion joints were getting a bit too expansive.

Sorry, comment time is over.
