The westbound lanes of the Spokane Street Viaduct (the raised roadway that connects I-5 to the West Seattle Bridge) will be closed from 10 p.m. Wednesday, October 27 to 5 a.m. Thursday, October 28. SDOT’s contractor will stripe the roadway and install a temporary barrier in preparation for widening the easternmost portion of the Spokane Street Viaduct.
During this work, traffic from southbound I-5, that would otherwise take the Spokane Street Viaduct, will instead be directed to the Forest Street exit to access surface streets. Traffic from northbound I-5 and westbound traffic from Columbian Way will be detoured to surface streets at Sixth Avenue South.
