A contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will partially close the intersection of Airport Way South and Sixth Avenue South this weekend, weather permitting, to reconstruct a portion of the roadway. This work was scheduled for last weekend but was cancelled due to unfavorable weather. The crews plan to begin 7 a.m. Saturday, November 6 and complete work by 4 p.m. Sunday, November 7. Traffic detours and restrictions are as follows:
Southbound lanes on Airport Way South will be closed between South Dearborn Avenue and Maynard Avenue South from 7 a.m. Saturday to 11 a.m. Sunday. One lane northbound will remain open.
Sixth Avenue South will be closed at South Royal Brougham Way to general purpose traffic from 7 a.m. Saturday to 4 p.m. Sunday. Local access maintained between Airport Way South and South Royal Brougham Way.
Vehicles northbound on Sixth Avenue South will be detoured to South Royal Brougham Way and then to Fourth Avenue South to get back to Airport Way. Vehicles southbound on Airport Way South will be detoured to South Dearborn Street and then to Maynard Avenue South to get back to Airport Way South.
SDOT is coordinating this work with the major events taking place in the SODO area this weekend and access will be maintained to surrounding businesses. Detour routes will be clearly posted and police officers will be on site to keep traffic moving. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
