Closures this weekend: Delridge/Trenton intersection and Highway 99

Never too soon to plan for the weekend ahead. First, we have the detour map for the Delridge/Trenton intersection closure, rescheduled for this coming weekend, 7 pm Friday (February 22) till 6 am Monday (February 25):

Traffic will be detoured as follows, with local access maintained (see attached map):

· Northbound Delridge Way SW to SW Barton Place/Street to 35th Avenue SW to SW Thistle Street to Delridge Way SW
· Southbound Delridge Way SW to SW Thistle Street to 35th Avenue SW to SW Barton Street/Place to Delridge Way SW
· Westbound SW Trenton Street to 16th Avenue SW to SW Henderson Street to SW Barton Place to 25th Avenue SW to SW Trenton Street
· Eastbound SW Trenton Street to 25th Avenue SW to SW Barton Place to SW Henderson Street to 16th Avenue SW to SW Trenton Street

Evening construction, including pavement removal using impact breakers, may be performed until 10:00 p.m. under the conditions of a noise variance to expedite construction.

Second – We have clarification on the closure plan for Highway 99 this weekend, as traffic is reconfigured for the upcoming “Timber Bridge” work just south of the West Seattle Bridge. WSDOT’s Broch Bender tells WSB that the closure plan outlined on their website is correct:

4:30 am Saturday, Feb. 23 through 5 am Monday, Feb. 25: Southbound SR 99 will be closed between the Battery Street Tunnel and S. Nevada Street. Northbound SR 99 will be closed between S. Nevada Street and the West Seattle Bridge.

Monday morning, Feb. 25, the overpass reopens with one lane southbound and two lanes northbound. Traffic stays in this configuration through June 2014

Bender says the eastbound bridge exit to northbound 99 WILL be open.

Last but by no means least – EARLY warning: Alaskan Way Viaduct/99 is scheduled for an inspection closure all day Saturday, March 2nd. Here’s the full regional roundup of shutdowns.

  1. So if I am reading this right – we can use 99 to leave WS this weekend, just not return on it?

  3. “Monday morning, Feb. 25, the overpass reopens with one lane southbound and two lanes northbound. Traffic stays in this configuration through June 2014″

    One lane southbound at that point for another 15 months? Won’t this greatly impact the commute home for those of us who commute from downtown?

  4. Here’s my analogy about traffic in Seattle. Its like an old western where they heard all the cows into a box canyon and there’s no way out.
