West Seattle road/utility-work updates: 47th/Admiral; Barton/22nd

Two road-work/traffic-alert updates from the city. First, an SDOT update on the 47th/Admiral signal work:

(WSB photo from midday today)

Crews have begun working at the northeast corner of the intersection [above] and will continue demolition and begin electrical work this week. The corner is expected to be poured with new concrete next week, the week of March 23. The corner is currently closed to pedestrians and bicyclists. People walking and biking will need to follow the suggested detour around the work area or seek an alternate route. Crews will be at work on this corner for approximately three weeks.

Work hours are generally 7 am-3 pm, says SDOT. You can go here to sign up for e-mail updates on the work, or keep an eye on the official project page.

Second update, a traffic alert for Thursday near the 22nd/Barton CSO 3 project:

On Thursday, March 19, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., traffic on SW Barton Place at 22nd Avenue SW will be stopped intermittently for five-minute intervals to allow for delivery of materials. A flagger will be on site to direct traffic and we are communicating directly to residents whose driveways share this intersection. We are also coordinating with Metro to minimize bus impacts whenever possible. More information about the work can be found in the attached flyer.

Here’s what this project is all about.

    For what it’s worth, and maybe this will change in the next few days but the sidewalk on the North side of Admiral, and the ramps on 47th are still open. A significant chunk of the sidewalk is roped off (or part of a big hole!), and they’ve made temporary ramps further in on 47th, but it definitely is more “open” to pedestrians than the SDOT update makes it sound.

    Again though, maybe the construction will expand to completely close that sidewalk soon. But for now, the “suggested detour” is literally to walk a few more feet to the North on the sidewalk.

Sorry, comment time is over.
