The contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) to widen the Spokane Street Viaduct will close the structure’s westbound lanes just west of I-5 for six nights: January 19, 20, 21, 24, 25 and 26. The crews will be shifting the bridge weight onto a new column; installing a barrier for work on the Harbor Island ramp; and determining base pavement repair needs, with work starting each night at 10 p.m. and wrapping up by 5 a.m. On Saturday night and Sunday night no work is scheduled and all lanes will be open.
During this work, southbound I-5 traffic will be directed to the Forest Street exit to access surface streets. Northbound I-5 traffic and westbound traffic from Columbian Way will be detoured to surface streets at 6th Avenue South.
