CLOSURE ALERT: Eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct work this weekend

(Image from SDOT webcam)

SDOT says it has more pothole work to do on the eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct – the older side of the West Seattle Bridge continuation east of the Highway 99 overpass – so it’ll be closed for much, though not all, of the weekend:

On Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3, from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, we will close the on-ramp from eastbound SW Spokane St (West Seattle Low Bridge) to the Spokane St Viaduct, as well as the eastbound lanes of the Spokane St Viaduct.
A signed detour will be in place along SW Spokane St.

    WSB. Did they say where they’re repairing.? Having driven on that part after that last closure (during authorized hours) didn’t see any potholes that weren’t filled.

      What I published is the entirety of the information I have.

    I never allowed myself to be hopeful that during the 2.5 Year closure of the bridge, SDOT might have found the time and resources to carry out the much needed true resurfacing of this section of the bridge eastbound lanes.Instead it appears we will return to the perpetual six month cycle: minefield of car-killing potholes…inadequate spot-filling… rapid crumbling… months of car-killing potholes. I can’t wait for the bridge to open. I’ll look forward to swerving like a drunk driver in those left lanes again.

    I will continue to look forward to the roostertails of water coming over the jersey barrier from oncoming traffic when it rains hard. And let’s not forget “the lake” in the curb land of southbound 99 just before the West Seattle Bridge exit. Surf’s up!

    Yes AND they better be working on the high level bridge also!

Sorry, comment time is over.
