Starting this weekend, August 22-23, a private contractor will begin working on S Cloverdale St between 10th Ave S and 12th Ave S to replace two large utility cuts in the road that are currently patched with asphalt. This work will continue for two consecutive weekends.

During this work, traffic will be down to a single lane. The contractor’s crews will be directing traffic in alternate directions. Crews will be at the site 24/7 during these weekends and people should expect delays. This work is weather dependent.

The paving crews will use fast-setting concrete, which means that if all goes well, the road should be open for Monday morning traffic each week.  

Delridge Way closure

As a part of the Delridge Way SW RapidRide H Line project, all lanes of Delridge Way SW will be closed from SW Barton St to 18th Ave SW for up to 2 days beginning on Saturday, August 29. Delridge Way SW will be restricted to local access only from SW Henderson St to SW Roxbury St, but access to businesses in this area will be maintained. This closure will allow our team to connect a catch basin in the roadway. Please follow posted detour routes to 16th Ave SW.  

Construction on the Delridge Way SW – RapidRide H Line project began in June and will last through 2022. This project is funded by the voter-approved Move Seattle Levy and will add new bus lanes, paving, crosswalk safety improvements, protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenway connections, signal upgrades, water and sewer pipe upgrades, and public art.

If you have any questions about this work, please contact  DelridgeTransit@seattle.gov or 206-775-8739.  

Tree trimming on SW Orchard St in Delridge

We are continuing our tree trimming work on West Seattle Bridge closure reroutes this weekend. This work is important to increase visibility and enhance safety. This Saturday and Sunday, August 22-23, we’ll work to complete tree trimming on SW Orchard St between Delridge Way SW and Dumar Way SW heading eastbound. If we’re able to finish that project, there is also some much-needed tree trimming to accomplish at the 6700 block of W Marginal Way SW, near Highland Park Way SW.

Because high traffic volumes and proximity to the intersection, each of these locations requires the use of three uniformed police officers to handle traffic control
