Good morning. Roads are OK so far. So here we go with today’s notes:

SEATTLE CENTER-AREA ROADS OPEN AGAIN: As of 7 pm last night, Broad St. was open again after the wreckage from the helicopter/cars was cleared; 5th had reopened earlier.

OLSON PLACE PAVEMENT REPAIR: If this project is on track, this will be day 2 for pavement-repair work around the east end of SW Roxbury.

HIGHWAY 99 CLOSURE: Highway 99 between East Marginal and Atlantic is likely to close tonight, 9 pm-5 am, for more of the Spokane St. Overcrossing project’s finishing touches just south of the West Seattle Bridge.

SATURDAY ALASKAN WAY VIADUCT CLOSURE: 4:30 am-7 pm Saturday is the scheduled closure window for the followup inspection of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

1:20 PM UPDATE: No Highway 99 closure tonight or for the rest of the week. The Spokane St. Overcrossing striping work is now planned for Saturday, during the Viaduct closure, per WSDOT.

3:36 PM UPDATE: If you see crews on northbound Fauntleroy Way this afternoon, take note – from SDOT:

SDOT is closing the northbound, curb lane on Fauntleroy SW at SW Webster Street starting approx. 4 or 4:30 p.m. today, as soon as barricades arrive. There is a four-inch depression in the pavement. Crews are investigating the cause before determining how to repair.

  1. Accident at Roxbury & 8th, cops directing traffic (at least when I passed by there a while ago).

  2. re: the viaduct closures, is there a place to find a list of all upcoming closures, like for inspections and marathons and the like? (like closures out in April and May?)

    seems like they only feature a 1 week look ahead.

  3. Things change often so the accuracy is not that great. I sometimes get a two-weeks heads-up on not-otherwise-announced closures – and I publish them here – google SDOT Construction Lookahead, often linked here previously. (I am in the middle of something and can’t post link) – TR
