ROAD-WORK FOLLOWUP: West Marginal/Highland Park Way work starting earlier this weekend

That SDOT photo shows just some of the work that crews did at the West Marginal Way/Highland Park Way intersection last weekend. And they’ve just sent an update on what’s planned this weekend, including an even-earlier start, and lane reductions:

Crews fixed broken concrete panels under the north leg curb island, which was also removed. This weekend we plan to repour new concrete panels and new curb ramps on the northwest corner of the intersection. Crews will also be working on the new signal pedestrian pole push button and signal hand holes for vehicle detection.

Crews will plan to work each day – Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 – from 3 AM to 1 PM. People driving can expect shift in traffic near the intersection as we make these changes. The roadway will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Please follow posted signs and drive slowly through the area. Uniformed police officers will be present to direct people driving.

This is considered part of the wider West Seattle Bridge Program, so if you have questions about it, bring them to tomorrow’s online community meeting (5:30 pm Wednesday).

    SDOT!!!  Please do this work at night!  Ridiculous that you don’t understand how miserable this bridge/no bridge fiasco is for the residents of West Seattle!!!

    Just looked at traffic camera and still see orange cones.  Does anyone know if its still going?

      We went through about an hour ago. No work. The only orange cones etc. are in the southbound inside lane where the island is/was being removed, there’s a spot of new concrete roped off. Hope to get a full update this week on what’s been done in the last two weekends of work and what remains – TR
