An update from SDOT as Phase 3 of the Delridge Way repaving project proceeds – the next intersection closure is tentatively scheduled to start at the end of next week:

May 31 – June 3: Delridge Way SW & SW Holden Street Intersection Closure

All work is weather-dependent

Most of the intersection of Delridge Way SW and SW Holden Street will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, May 31, until 6 a.m. Monday, June 3, for roadway restoration and storm drain installation. This work is part of the Seattle Department of Transportation’s Delridge Way SW Paving Project that is rebuilding much of Delridge Way SW between SW Orchard and SW Roxbury streets.

For the closure of the Delridge/Holden intersection, the detour will be as follows (see attached map):

· Northbound traffic on Delridge Way SW – Take SW Thistle Street to 35th Avenue SW to SW Morgan Street/ Sylvan Way SW/ SW Orchard Street to Delridge Way SW

· Southbound traffic on Delridge Way SW – Take SW Holden Street to 35th Avenue SW to SW Thistle Street to Delridge Way SW

During the week of June 3, the roadway will be striped between SW Henderson and SW Thistle streets, the areas of Phases 1 and 2. Street parking will be eliminated and lanes will be temporarily shifted for up to four days while striping is completed


  1. They want to do this over the Memorial Day weekend? SDOT truly has no love for West Seattle.

  2. Chas – it’s a week later than Memorial Day, which is kind of early this year, coming up THIS weekend!

  3. I thought they were gonna pave the entire road/widen it, etc. All they are doing is digging up and replacing the old drainage pipe underneath and then repaving those portions. It’s ridiculous.
