Several closures will start on Friday, Jan 22, for the Spokane Street Widening Project (this is the viaduct that connects I-5 to the West Seattle Bridge):
The Fourth Ave S Off-ramp from westbound Spokane Street Viaduct will close permanently.
Spokane Street lower roadway, westbound lanes, will close between Fourth Ave S and Sixth Ave S until 2012, except for access to businesses within the area.
The I-5 off-ramp to the West Seattle Bridge will close the weekend of Jan 22 starting 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Instead, use the Forest Street exit from I-5 (before the West Seattle exit).
