SDOT advises travelers in West Seattle that the on-ramp from surface Spokane Street onto the eastbound direction of the Fauntleroy Expressway (adjacent to the Nucor plant) will be closed for a short time on Thursday evening, June 30, beginning at 7 p.m. in order for the contractor to replace its bearing pads. During the short closure, motorists seeking to use this on-ramp will instead be detoured to the nearby Delridge on-ramp.
It is expected that the surface street Spokane on-ramp will be reopened by 9 p.m. The mainline Expressway closure Thursday evening will NOT begin until the on-ramp has been reopened.
The Fauntleroy Expressway Bearing Pad Replacement Project began with its first weeknight closure of the Expressway in mid-May and is nearing its completion.
