SDOT and its contractor Gary Merlino Construction Company are making improvements to Airport Way South. As part of this work, new concrete panels will be replaced at the S Atlantic Street and S Massachusetts Street intersections. Work is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Friday, May 14th and is scheduled to be completed by 6 a.m. Monday, May 17th. Airport Way S between S Royal Brougham and S Massachusetts St will be closed to southbound traffic.
All vehicles using the I-5 Airport Way S off-ramp will be required to head northbound. Detour signs will be posted directing traffic onto S Royal Brougham, to Sixth Avenue South, to S Holgate Street and onto S Airport Way. Detour routes will also be posted, with police officers and flaggers on site to assist, for the following eastbound traffic closures (local access only):
• S Massachusetts St between Sixth Avenue S and Airport Way S
• S Royal Brougham between Sixth Avenue S and Airport Way S
This project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
