A contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will lay asphalt pavement on East Marginal Way South at night beginning August 31 and continuing through September 2. Crews will work on East Marginal Way between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. between Ellis Avenue South and the Seattle/Tukwila city limits.
During paving, one lane in each direction will be maintained on East Marginal Way. There will be periodic cross-street and driveway interruptions (from two to four hours).
Drivers should expect increased construction-truck activity and traffic flaggers periodically directing drivers. Uniformed police officers will be on site to help keep traffic moving. Motorists in the area should reduce speeds, use caution and expect some delays.
