Traffic alert: Daytime detours next week

Heads up on a detour next week that’s part of one of the ongoing projects in the area. From SDOT, the map (click it for a larger image) and announcement:

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) continues performing seismic work on the Fauntleroy Expressway in West Seattle.
Next week, from Monday, February 13th to Friday, February 17, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, SW Avalon Way will be restricted and the following detour will be in place (please see the attached map):
Northbound motorists traveling on SW Avalon Way will be detoured to eastbound SW Spokane Street. They will then be directed to perform a u-turn at 26th Avenue SW onto westbound SW Spokane Street and then north on Harbor Avenue SW. Northbound trucks and Metro buses traveling on SW Avalon Way will be flagged through the work zone.
During these times southbound traffic on Harbor Avenue SW will experience short delays at SW Spokane Street.
The SW Spokane Street on-ramp to the West Seattle Bridge will remain open.
Police Officers will assist traffic.
Nighttime closures affecting motorists westbound on the West Seattle Bridge and eastbound on Fauntleroy Way SW will still be in effect, as previously announced, from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday through early Saturday mornings.
