Most of the intersection of Delridge Way Southwest and Southwest Holden Street will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, May 31 until 6 a.m. Monday, June 3 for roadway restoration and storm drain installation. This work is part of the Seattle Department of Transportation’s Delridge Way Southwest Paving Project that is rebuilding much of Delridge Way Southwest between Southwest Orchard and Southwest Roxbury streets.
For the closure of the Delridge/Holden intersection, the detour will be as follows:
- Northbound traffic on Delridge Way Southwest – Take Southwest Thistle Street to 35th Avenue Southwest, then proceed north to Southwest Morgan Street, then to Sylvan Way Southwest which becomes Southwest Orchard Street, returning to Delridge Way Southwest.
- Southbound traffic on Delridge Way Southwest – Take Southwest Holden Street to 35th Avenue Southwest and then head south on Southwest Thistle Street, returning to Delridge Way Southwest.
During the week of June 3, the roadway will be striped between Southwest Henderson and Southwest Thistle streets, the areas of Phases 1 and 2 of the project. Street parking will be eliminated and lanes will be temporarily shifted for up to four days while striping is completed.
This is a five-phase project. Upon completion of Phase 3 work, construction activity will move north to Phase 4, between Southwest Holden and Southwest Orchard streets. The Delridge Way Southwest Paving Project is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
