DELRIDGE PROJECT: SW Thistle closure ahead, and what else is planned this week

Just east of that intersection at Delridge Way SW, SW Thistle will be closed for several weeks, starting as soon as tomorrow. That’s part of what’s coming up in the ongoing street/utility work preparing for next fall’s RapidRide H Line launch. SDOT says its contractor will close SW Thistle between Delridge and 20th “to complete temporary signal work and to demolish and rebuild the sidewalk.” Some driveways will be affected intermittently. Other notes include:

*Once SW Hudson reopens, SW Brandon will be closed on the east side of Delridge. This too will include some driveway impacts

*Puget Blvd SW near the Delridge P-Patch is expected to reopen this week

*Electrical upgrades at the bus stop on the west side of SW Andover are expected to start this week

*Electrical work continues in the sidewalk between SW Orchard St and 21st Ave SW

*Vehicle-detection loop installation and concrete work at the intersection of SW Oregon and Delridge has been rescheduled to mid-December

    So…other than S.W. Henderson to the south or the sh– show streets to the North, the only other straight access to 16th is being shut down?!?! Does Trenton or Coverdale get the road closure signs removed during this closure??? Thank you again city of seattle and all of your genius decisions that affect citizens with only so many ways out. Taxation without representation!!! Belongs not only to the “other” Washington….

      Oh no, they have to close streets to better provide infrastructure. Whatever will we do.

    I think @born&raisedws is bemoaning the “closed streets” that are the Stay Healthy closures for neighborhood walking/biking, etc. If the main thoroughfare (Thistle) is closed, they should open those side streets (Trenton, Cloverdale) temporarily until Thistle is open again.

    The Stay Healthy street closures are absurd for streets with single family residences and sidewalks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
