FOLLOWUP: Here’s when SDOT plans permanent repairs for Admiral Way sinkhole

(WSB photo, August 26th)

A week and a half after a sizable sinkhole opened in the middle of Admiral Way, SDOT has set the date for permanent repairs. Just got word from SDOT’s Kari Tupper that “we are going to be working on the road repairs on Admiral Way and also working on two nearby Seattle Public Utilities water cut repairs on Tuesday and Wednesday (9/8-9/9), right after the holiday … the crews are expecting to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction throughout the days of work.” Pending those repairs, the sinkhole’s been covered by a steel plate.

    We  have lived on Admiral Way for over 40 years, this street needs to be repaved instead of these fast fix repairs.  Please, Alki residence send a letter to SDOT to voice your concern that the stretch of  SW Admiral Way starting at California Avenue SW going west towards the beach needs to be REPAVED!  Thank-you!

    3 houses beyond that sinkhole is another significant sinkhole risk but SDOT had refused to evaluate the situation or assess the likely risk of further problems despite multiple requests to do so. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
