The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and its contractor, weather permitting, will remove existing pavement and repave a segment of the Sixth Avenue South near Airport Way South November 18th and 19th. To complete the work, Sixth Avenue South between South Royal Brougham Way and Airport Way South will be closed to general purpose traffic. Local access to area businesses and residence will be maintained.
The planned street closure will take place from 7 a.m., Thursday until 4 p.m. Friday. The work is part of the project to improve Airport Way South from South Royal Brougham Way to South Dearborn Street.
Vehicles heading northbound on Sixth Avenue South will be detoured around the work utilizing South Royal Brougham Way to Fourth Avenue South to Airport Way South to South Dearborn Street and back to Sixth Avenue South. Motorist wanting to head south on Sixth Avenue South will be directed to use Airport Way South to South Royal Brougham Way and back to Sixth Avenue South.
Detour routes will be clearly posted. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
As announced earlier, there will be other work on this project continuing through the weekend.
This project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
