Pending Washington State Department of Transportation approval, the contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation to widen the Spokane Street Viaduct will close the westbound lanes of the structure for three nights: May 19, 23 and 24. Crews will work from 10 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the next morning to demolish the outer concrete edge of the existing Spokane Street Viaduct, between Fifth Avenue South and Sixth Avenue South, where the viaduct meets I-5 ramps. The work also requires that Sixth Avenue South at Spokane Street be closed overnight, May 19, 23 and 24 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
During this work, southbound I-5 traffic will be directed to the South Forest Street exit to access surface streets. Northbound I-5 traffic and westbound traffic from Columbian Way South will be detoured to surface streets at Sixth Avenue South.
