West Seattle road work: Admiral Way Bridge project ahead

June 11, 2014 at 5:13 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 3 Comments

Early warning from SDOT – this starts next Monday:

The westbound, right lane of the Admiral Way Bridge [over Fairmount Ravine] will be closed from June 16 to June 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will be using their U-bit truck (under-bridge construction truck) to make repairs to the underside of the bridge. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

The U-bit truck will be parked on the bridge deck. The truck has an arm that can bend over the side and under the bridge. There is a cab on the end of the arm to carry one or two persons, allowing them to work on the underside of the bridge.

  1. I am afraid that this will negatively impact the residents who live underneath that bridge. I am speaking of course about the “homeless” youth that illegally camp underneath the structure and desecrate the neighborhood.

    .

    How will the city mitigate their being inconvenienced?

  2. to Hipster. The work probably falls under the “Urban Village” concept. There’s nothing you can do or say, it will be done. Kinda like voting no for stadiums, they still get built. The homeless will just have to “buck up” like the rest of us.

  3. If only we could be so grateful to have them flee out of inconvienence and NEVER return.

    NEVER in bold and underlined.
