Mill and overlay roadway upgrades beginning between the West Seattle Bridge and SW Dakota St as early as Monday, May 3

Access to driveways in the area will be temporarily impacted for short periods during this work

Overlay paving is scheduled to take place the week of May 24

Full intersection closure at 21st Ave SW and Delridge Way SW [east side – Delridge itself remains open] beginning Thursday, May 6. This area is expected to reopen in mid-May

People driving should detour to SW Trenton St or SW Orchard St during these upgrades

Restoration between SW Willow St and SW Orchard St continues

Intersection upgrades at SW Kenyon St have been rescheduled to begin as early as Monday, May 3

A UPO [uniformed police officer] will be present at all times to direct traffic at this intersection, and work should be completed by the end of next week

Roadwork demolition and paving on the east side between SW Holden St and SW Thistle St beginning as early as May 10

    When are they going to be done with all this construction? In some of these areas, it is hard for me to walk my dog. I am retired, had covid, and need to walk my dog to stay mobile. I know a lot of people in the same situation as well as all of our dogs that need lots of walks. I’m just concerned about our animals’ health.

    I missed the dates for the Genesee/Delridge intersection. Will that be closed soon for repairs/redo?

    I know it’s coming and needs to be done. but awaiting when the intersection of Delridge and Henderson gets reconstructed as is part of the plan. That may be a challenge. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
