ROAD-WORK ALERT: SW 106th/107th reconfiguration work next week

If you use SW 106th/107th between Arbor Heights and White Center, you might have seen the signboard for road work coming up next week. We did, so we asked King County Roads for details; here’s what we just received from spokesperson Brent Champaco:

We are taking the road from two lanes to a three-lane configuration that will feature:

· Left –turn lanes at 26th Avenue SW
· Two-way, left-turn lanes around 25th Avenue SW
· Striped median in the S-curves between 22nd and 25th Avenues SW
· Two-way, left-turn lane between 17th and 22nd Avenues SW

The restriping work is scheduled to last 3-5 days, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. All lanes of traffic will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. At other times, at least one lane will remain open with flaggers directing traffic. No parking will be allowed along this part of the road during the project.

If you live/work near that stretch, you’ve probably already seen this flyer (or a similar door-hanger card), part of the outreach Champaco says was done for people in the area.

    There are also no-parking signboards along 106th between 42nd and Marine View Drive (within City of Seattle). Are these projects related? If not, do you have any idea what will happen here? The instructions are for no parking on Sept. 12.

      All depends on what the signs say. Do they say SDOT? Or Infrasource? Or something else? That’s always the clue. A lot of Infrasource signs around right now (they do utility-related work). I’ll go out and look in a bit.

        Just got my answer. It’s SDOT. They have now added paperwork saying they’re going to grind and repave that section of 106th.


        Thanks again!

          Another otherwise unannounced “spot paving” project! I asked them again this week if they had a list … oh well. Thanks for the update.

Sorry, comment time is over.
