Another traffic alert: West Seattle Bridge ‘rolling slowdowns’

Also from SDOT – heads-up for “rolling slowdowns” on the West Seattle Bridge next Monday:

The Seattle Department of Transportation will be inspecting the Fauntleroy Expressway bridge deck on April 30th between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The inspection team will establish short-term lane closures of the right hand lane using truck-mounted traffic warning devices. The inspection will begin near West Seattle and move westbound. The inspection team will make short-term (15 minutes) stops at any given location along the bridge deck. After completing the westbound route the team will then inspect eastbound, toward Downtown Seattle, also along the right hand lane. The entire inspection will be completed by 3:00 p.m.

This is part of the Fauntleroy Expressway Seismic Retrofit Project; we took an up-close look at some of the earlier work for this story back in January.

      Do you mean, when will ALL the work be done? Viaduct/99 aside, by end of summer. Maybe sooner. – TR

    The unmarked bus lane the merging around the Delridge entrance the big mess going west down the hill. Not sure how to even describe that horrible area. Having no marked lanes makes it even worse.
