Delridge Phase 4 Starts July 8 – SW Holden to SW Orchard streets

Work on Delridge Way SW Paving Phase 4, between SW Holden and SW Orchard streets, begins July 8. This segment of work will not require a detour as the roadway is wide enough to maintain one lane of traffic each way. Meanwhile, a detour will still be required through at least July 11 in Phase 3 (more details below). Work on this paving project is going smoothly, with crews meeting the planned schedule for each segment. Phase 4 is expected to last approximately 2 1/2 to 3 months and thew entire project is set to be complete by the end of 2013.


Phase 3, between SW Thistle and SW Holden streets, wraps up soon with final striping and roadway markings the week of July 8. To complete that last Phase 4 element, southbound DelridgeWay traffic will remain detoured as follows for up to 4 days.

  • West on SW Holden Street
  • South on 35th Avenue SW
  • East on SW Thistle Street
  • South on Delridge Way SW

As Phase 4 construction progresses and moves from one side of Delridge Way to the other, drivers will encounter traffic lane shiftsLocal access to businesses and residences will be maintained.

This is a five-phase project. Upon completion of Phase 4 work, construction activity will move south between SW Roxbury and SW Henderson streets. The Delridge Way SW Paving Project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
