ROAD WORK: Delridge project’s plan for the week ahead

Major work resumes tomorrow on the Delridge repaving-and-utilities project preparing for the RapidRide H Line. Here are the key points in SDOT‘s weekly preview:

*Vehicle detection loop installation and concrete work at the intersection of SW Oregon St and Delridge Way SW scheduled to begin as early as January 4. Traffic will be split around the planned roadway median during this work. The following week, traffic will be shifted to the east side.

*SW Brandon St on the east side is scheduled to reopen by (this) week. The west side of SW Brandon St will remain closed for staging.

*SW Thistle St between Delridge Way SW and 20th Ave SW closed as early as January 4th to complete temporary signal work and to demolish and rebuild the sidewalk during duct bank installation. SW Thistle will be local access only.

*Roadway demolition and paving to resume on the west side of Delridge Way SW in Zone A and on the east side of Delridge Way SW in Zone B.

    Anyone know when this project is supposed to finish? It is feeling like no progress for months at a time.

      This fall remains the “substantial completion” date, even though the RRH launch was moved to next year.

      There’s definitely substantial progress and I feel like they are always working a ton of sites st once. It probably feels like there hasn’t been much done because they did stop work the last few weeks of December for covid spread and I imagine holidays

    Regarding the section between Graham and 22nd, where they have completely reconfigured the driving pattern – would it be too much to ask that the SDOT contractor mark the lanes CLEARLY with cones? Almost got hit head-on twice this morning on Delridge in just that short span – pnce when I was southbound and again returning northbound.

Sorry, comment time is over.
