Another long list of events and reminders to start the weekend, mostly from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
ROAD-WORK REMINDERS: If you missed it in our Friday traffic watch, here’s what SDOT plans today:
Between 7 AM to 5 PM, we’re updating curb ramps at 16th Ave SW and SW Barton St in Highland Park. We will be working from the parking lanes, but people driving in the area can expect minor delays.
Additionally, between 7 AM to 5 PM, we’ll be installing traffic signs on southbound SR 99 between S Atlantic S and S Spokane St. During this work, we’ll need to reduce the two travel lanes to a single lane. People driving southbound on SR 99 may experience delays.
In South Park, the intersection of S Chicago St and 5th Ave S will be closed from 6 AM to 4 PM for upgrading the main water line under the street. This work is part of the South Park Drainage and Roadway Partnership, which is a project we are working together on with Seattle Public Utilities to improve chronic flooding and drainage issues in South Park.
And a reminder that repairs were finished early on the Spokane Street ramp to NB 99, so it’s open again.
