The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making street and sidewalk improvements on Airport Way South between South Lucile Street and South Hardy Street in the Georgetown neighborhood.
The intersection of Airport Way South and 13th Avenue South will be closed for base repair work from 7 p.m. on Friday, October 14 until 5 a.m. on Monday, October 17. Northbound vehicles will be detoured at South Hardy Street and southbound vehicles will be detoured at South Vale Street. There will be a separate truck detour with northbound trucks detouring at South Hardy Street and southbound trucks detouring at South Lucille Street.
Additionally, on Saturday and Sunday, Airport Way South between South Lucile Street and South Corson Street will be reduced to one lane with uniformed police officers and flaggers directing two-way traffic through the area.
Local access, pedestrian access, and access to businesses will be maintained during this work. For information on Metro Transit, look for Rider Alerts at bus stops, visit Metro Online at www.kingcounty.gov/metro , or call (206) 553-3000.
This work is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
