ROAD-WORK ALERT: West Seattle Bridge lane closure Tuesday-Thursday

4:23 PM: Warmer weather brings more road work. SDOT says crews will be working on the shoulder of the westbound West Seattle Bridge for the next three days – Tuesday, April 25th, through Thursday, April 27th – between 7 am and 2 pm each day. The announcement was brief so we have an inquiry out asking what exactly they’ll be doing.

8:44 PM: Just heard back from SDOT: This will be a “lane closure for onsite inspection of the high bridge. We have been doing these inspections since reopening the bridge to make sure the structural behavior of the bridge is in good condition.”

    Fix the drains and drainage on left lane Eastbound. Ridiculously scary and huge safety hazard when it rains! (Friendly reminder: IT RAINS IN SEATTLE. (Not a coincidence that ‘rain’ rhymes with ‘drain’.)

      Yes. What they said above me. How can that much time and money pass by and no one thought to clean the catch basins and fix the gutters underneath? I think some folk at sdot lied on they’re resume

Sorry, comment time is over.
