PROGRESS REPORT: 47th/Admiral signal & crosswalks

Just received this 47th/Admiral signal/crosswalks-project update from SDOT, including an alert for neighbors tomorrow, and a road closure next week:

Construction continues this week at the corners on the north side of the intersection of 47th Avenue SW, SW Admiral Way and SW Waite Street. Crews will begin pouring new concrete at the northeast corner as soon as today, March 31, and through the end of this week. New concrete at the northwest and north center (between SW Waite Street and 47th Avenue SW) corners is expected to be poured next week, weather depending. These corners will continue to be closed to pedestrians and bicyclists during work. People walking and biking will need to follow marked detours or find an alternate route.

Tomorrow, April 1, residents in the area can expect work to be louder than usual, when crews begin excavating for pole foundations at the southeast corner of the intersection. This work is scheduled to take place in the morning, beginning at 8 AM, and will last approximately four hours.

Closure and local access only at SW Waite Street
Beginning next Monday, April 6, SW Waite Street will be closed to thru-traffic for five days. This closure will be in place to allow crews to safely and efficiently perform underground electrical work in preparation for installation of the new signal. Local access will be permitted on SW Waite Street from the west. A detour will be signed on SW Admiral Way directing travelers to continue on SW Admiral Way and access SW Waite Street from 49th Avenue SW.

The project team will distribute flyers in the area later this week with detour information and post this information on the project webpage additionally.

    Any word on the status of the vacated LifeCare center at that intersection.?

      It’s still set to become a new retirement center. Don’t have the newest date for demolition, though; the project is still making its way through the city review/permitting center.

    Does anyone know- Is 47th going to become one-way when this construction is finished? The way the sidewalks have been built out on each side, it doesn’t seem like there’s room for two-way traffic to enter/leave 47th to/from Admiral. I don’t remember this being discussed and hope I’m wrong…

Sorry, comment time is over.
