The Spokane Street Viaduct Widening Project continues to move closer to completion, with most work now expected to be completed by early October.
The eastbound off-ramp at First Avenue S will reopen Wednesday morning, September 19. The same morning, First Avenue S between S Spokane and S Horton Streets will be returned to two travel lanes in each direction, and the eastbound stretch of surface S Spokane Street from East Marginal Way to First Avenue S will reopen.
The only project-related street closure over the coming week will be a modest one—the Tuesday, September 18, overnight closure of First Avenue S, from the on/off-ramp to the north side of the intersection of First Avenue and S Spokane for both north and southbound traffic. The First Avenue on-ramp to West Seattle will remain open.
These and other project related traffic impacts are outlined below.
Monday, September 17
Surface S Spokane Street west of East Marginal Way will be restricted overnight from 10 p.m. on Monday until 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning. During this time, northbound traffic on East Marginal Way wishing to turn west onto S Spokane Street will be detoured to the north and directed to make a u-turn. Southbound traffic on East Marginal Way will be permitted to turn west onto S Spokane Street.
