Starting Wednesday or Thursday, July 22 or 23, construction crews plan to bring in equipment and prepare for reconstruction of 16th Avenue SW, between SW Findlay Street and SW Brandon Street. There may be some traffic interruptions with assistance of flaggers this week, but they will be short in duration.
Starting Monday, July 27, the 16th Avenue SW roadway will be closed to northbound traffic at SW Findlay Street. For motorists traveling on 16th Avenue SW with destinations north of SW Findlay, the only through access will be by way of SW Austin St/Dumar Way SW/SW Orchard St and Delridge Way SW. There are no other through streets north of SW Austin to allow traffic to get north of SW Findlay. For information or questions about transit service, please call Metro Transit customer service at (206) 553-3000, or visit Metro Transit online at: http://www.kingcounty.gov/metro
Construction is expected to last six to eight weeks.
Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will reconstruct a section of pavement that is now in very poor condition on 16th Avenue SW between SW Findlay Street and SW Brandon Street. A portion of the street will be widened.
