The southern portion of Delridge Way SW is an important West Seattle arterial that has deteriorated over time. Beginning next week, the Seattle Department of Transportation will rebuild Delridge Way SW between SW Orchard and SW Roxbury streets to improve travel conditions and promote safety.
SDOT’s paving contractor expects to begin work on Jan. 10 and to substantially complete the project by the end of this year. Normal work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with some weekend work and possible night work.
The work will be done in phases to minimize the construction impacts to the nearby community. Each phase is expected to last two to three months.
Phase 1: SW Henderson St to SW Trenton St (work will begin in the southbound direction)
Phase 2: SW Trenton St to SW Thistle St
Phase 3: SW Thistle St to SW Holden St
Phase 4: SW Holden St to SW Orchard St
Phase 5: SW Roxbury St to SW Henderson St
The project will include new concrete and asphalt roadway pavement, lane reconfiguration between SW Myrtle and SW Kenyon streets, drainage improvements, and upgraded curb ramps. The $6.7 million project is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters in 2006.
