ROAD-WORK ALERTS: Two West Seattle projects this weekend

While we usually include weekend road-work alerts in both our Friday morning traffic watch and our weekend-morning “what’s up” lists, these SDOT alerts for this weekend are worth an advance mention too. First, West Marginal Way near the Duwamish Tribe Longhouse, more work both days this weekend:

This weekend, we’ll continue working on the new pedestrian signal at the Duwamish Longhouse as part of the West Marginal Way SW Improvements project. We’ll begin work as soon as 6:30 AM and finish as early as 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday. This work is anticipated to have minor traffic impacts, but you may see traffic slowdowns and lane reductions in the area.

Second, Sunday work toward the east end of the Roxbury corridor:

This Sunday, October 3, we will be doing a fall clean-up of the SW Roxbury St and Olson Place SW medians. We will be performing a garbage sweep, weeding, hedging, and mulching of the landscape. Traffic impacts include closure of the inside lanes on SW Roxbury St and parts of Olson Place SW. We anticipate this work to begin as early as 7 AM and conclude as soon as 3:30 PM. Please use caution while traveling in the area.

    Am I the only one that thinks squeezing Marginal to one lane all day on the weekends for road work is ridiculous? In most other states, the departments of transportation work these types of projects over night when traffic is minimal… Is there a reason that SDOT can’t have this work occur between 8pm -5am? “Minimal traffic impacts” is an understatement.

    Are they working on both SB and NB lanes or only SB?

    Only southbound
