Alki Ave paving next week

This announcement just in from the city Transportation Department:

Next week SDOT paving crews will work on Alki Avenue
Southwest between 1732 Alki Avenue Southwest and Bonair Drive Southwest.

From 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. one lane will be open, shared by northbound
and southbound traffic, assisted by traffic flaggers. Once the asphalt
surface is ground down, until new asphalt is laid, the roadway surface
will be rough and there will be raised castings.

The crews plan to begin on Tuesday, March 11, and complete the project
by Friday, March 14.

That explains all the extra “no parking” signs we saw this afternoon east of the 53rd SW pump-project site — we THOUGHT that was a little too much to be blocking off.

    They should pave Fauntleroy first…

    Yes, it’s back to “Fauntle-rut” as we once dubbed it. Though we checked out the section of Alki that’s to be paved – and it’s got some serious chuckholes too, even worse news when all that heavy equipment for the pump project is going to move in for a while.

    Yes, we have a wonderful “view” of the lovely equipment of the pump! It’s gonna be a long summer of parking craziness!

    The Alki Ave paving is l o n g overdue. It needs to be done past Bonair Dr, all the way to Harbor Ave!

Sorry, comment time is over.
