Admiral paving update: Prepare for complete closure

Hot out of the inbox, a city update on the Admiral Way paving project, including a total shutdown between 41st & Olga, week after next — here’s hoping it’s finished on time, before colliding with Freeway Fright ’07 — click ahead for the full text of the city update:

From the Seattle Department of Transportation: 

The contractor is scheduled to repave the roadway at night, the week of August 6-10 (depending on weather conditions). Each day, work is set to begin at 7:00 PM and end by 6:00 AM the next morning. The decision to perform the paving work at night is due to the confined space on SW Admiral Way and safety concerns.  Measures will be taken to reduce noise. Jackhammers and the traditional “beeping” back-up alarms on construction equipment will not be used after 10:00 PM. SW Admiral Way between 41st Ave SW and SW Olga St will be closed (both directions) during the paving.  Local access will be allowed for residents on Admiral Way and in the neighborhood north of Admiral Way. All other traffic will be detoured. As always, emergency vehicles will be allowed through the construction area as necessary.

SW Admiral Way will also be closed (except local access) at the West Seattle Bridge exit and at SW Spokane Street. Detours will be posted. During the closure, traffic from the east will be detoured at the West Seattle Bridge exit to Fauntleroy Way SW, and traffic from the west will be detoured at California Avenue SW. The detour route will utilize California Avenue SW, SW Hanford Street, 37th Avenue SW, SW Manning Street, 35th Avenue SW, and Fauntleroy Way SW.

Current construction on SW Admiral Way includes repair of the roadway base, rebuilding and re-landscaping the traffic medians, and installing curb ramps.  Traffic is restricted to one lane in each direction (24 hrs a day/7 days a week) for the duration of the SW Admiral Way project, expected to be complete by mid-August. 

Left turns will be largely prohibited from and onto intersecting residential
(side) streets in the project area.  Parking may be prohibited on the residential (side) streets approaching Admiral Way to facilitate thec onstruction of new curb ramps at the corners.

Work on California Avenue SW

Final pavement striping and some cleanup activities are the only work remaining on California Avenue SW.  This work is scheduled for completion the first week of August.

    Well at least it’s scheduled to be completed BEFORE the I-5 closure – assuming they keep to schedule. Wow, if ever we should feel like we’re living on Vashon, now is the time.

Sorry, comment time is over.
