A few updates on the Fauntleroy Expressway seismic-safety-cushion-re-replacement project, which has been closing the west end of the West Seattle Bridge five nights a week for most of the past month and a half: Project spokesperson Paul Elliott says the eastbound Spokane St. onramp closure announced for 7 pm tonight apparently is NOT happening after all – the work was done last night, he learned. So unless something else changes at the last minute, tonight will be a “regular” 9 pm-5 am closure of the west end of the bridge, both ways.
Good news is – they are almost done re-replacing the cushions. A few more tasks remain before the bridge closures are done with, according to Elliott, but they’re close. And because of the holiday, tonight is the last closure until next Tuesday night (July 5th). We should get a project status update post-holiday.
