CLOSURE ALERT: Eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct work this weekend

For the second time in four weeks, SDOT will close the eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct – the West Seattle Bridge extension east of Highway 99 – this weekend. The reason is the same as the last closure – pothole work. The on-ramp from eastbound SW Spokane Street to the Spokane Street Viaduct, along with all eastbound lanes of the SSV, will close at 9 pm Friday (June 17th) and reopen by 5 am Monday (June 20th). SDOT says detour signs will be in place along lower Spokane Street.

    I hope they also drain Lake Spokane Street (the enormous puddle consuming the bike lane) below the viaduct.

    So I understand you won’t be able to use the lower Spokane bridge from west Seattle?

      No, this doesn’t change anything on the low bridge.

      Means instead of going up to elevated part to I5 you’ll be on surface Spokane until I5 on ramp-contending with traffic lights and possible freight trains. Also means if you want to go north on viaduct you’ll have to go north on 1st ave and enter by stadiums.

    And how about “the lakes” that form on the west side of 99 just before the Harbor Ave exit? The drainage there is non-existent. Or is that WSDOT because it is on 99?

    For those of us with medical access authorization to use the lower bridge, is the on-ramp to 99 North from SSV closed? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
