TRAFFIC ALERT: Saturday road work

Thanks for the tips. SDOT crews are out today doing more speed-hump installation – including on SW Holden. We just went through the area and saw crews there west of 16th. No traffic issues apparent, but just FYI.

DELRIDGE PROJECT: Weekend and night work, plus next week’s plan

Friday afternoons bring the latest update on the Delridge Way repaving/utilities/more project preparing for RapidRide H Line. Today, there’s word of weekend work and more overnight work. First, the key points highlighted by the project team:

*SW Barton Pl intersection upgrades are nearly complete and the street will reopen soon

*The east side of the SW Henderson St and Delridge Way SW will be closed as early as Monday, June 14 for upgrades.
-This work will last approximately three weeks. I’ve also attached a detour map for this work to this email.

*Seattle Public Utilities will be demolishing areas throughout the corridor for underground water utility upgrades this weekend, June 12 – 13

*We are continuing to paint final lane markings along the corridor. Parking restrictions will be in place while this work occurs. As a reminder, we will be working overnight.

*Bus-stop upgrades continue at SW Myrtle St and SW Holly St at the site of the future RapidRide stations

*We are wrapping up electrical utility upgrades between SW Holden St and SW Thistle St
-We will begin restoring the street as early as June 21

(That’s separate from the work that has SW Thistle still closed on the east side of Delridge.) Here’s the full preview for the week ahead.

TRAFFIC ALERT: Olson Place crash

ROAD-CLOSURE FOLLOWUPS: Yancy, Thistle updates

New info on two long-term east-west road closures – the results of separate, unrelated projects – that we’ve been tracking:

SW YANCY CLOSURE WEST OF 28TH: This closure is part of the Rise at Yancy Street supportive-housing project for local nonprofit Transitional Resources. TR CEO Darcell Slovek-Walker has just sent word that the contractor says the street is now scheduled to reopen June 19th – one week from Saturday.

SW THISTLE CLOSURE ON EAST SIDE OF DELRIDGE: This closure is part of the SDOT repaving/utilities project preparing for Metro Route 120 to become the RapidRide H Line in fall 2022. The SDOT project team says it is still closed because “we are currently evaluating a slight design change to the southeast corner which will require us to keep SW Thistle St closed to through traffic. This evaluation may result in some additional work in this area. If a design change is needed, we will follow up with more specific details on this work and the schedule.”

WEATHER, ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC: Wednesday notes

TRAFFIC ALERTS: West Marginal/Highland Park Way; 1st Avenue South Bridge

1:56 PM: Julia texted to say the signals are not working at West Marginal/Highland Park Way – possibly because of utility work in the area – and so it’s an all-way stop, with backups in all directions.

2:42 PM: That’s fixed, according to Tami. But now there are multiple reports of an extra-long opening on the 1st Avenue South Bridge.

2:45 PM: After more than half an hour, WSDOT says the bridge is back down so surface traffic can resume.

READER REPORT: Stuck bus at Delridge/Trenton

8:46 PM: Thanks to Matthew for the photo and report from Delridge/Trenton:

Not sure what happened here, but the bus appears to have come down the alley between 22nd and Delridge heading north and can’t make the turn out to delridge heading east because of a car parked in a temporary no-parking spot (not pictured). I don’t know how this bus managed to get through the alley to begin with.

Radio communication indicates police are trying to find the mis-parked car’s owner.

9:22 PM: All clear, Matthew reports in a comment.

TRAFFIC ALERT: Paving work at north end of Delridge Way

Thanks to Mark for the photo and tip: Paving work is under way tonight at the north end of Delridge Way, and that has traffic down to one lane each way. This work was supposed to start last night, but SDOT announced it was postponed until “the next dry night.” Apparently tonight qualifies. This work, scheduled for 7 pm-6 am on work nights, is part of the repaving/utilities/more work to prepare for the conversion of Metro Route 120 into the RapidRide H Line next year. Here’s the project’s full work plan for this week.
