SDOT advises travelers that work on the SW Admiral Way Safety Project in West Seattle is scheduled to take 1-2 days starting on Monday, October 10, depending on the weather. “No Parking” signs will be displayed through at least Friday, October 14, but will be removed once the work is complete. Rainy weather impedes the crews ability to paint and stripe, and with the current forecast, crews will be making a daily call on whether the work can be done.
Neighbors can park on Admiral Way over the weekend and on weeknights after 6 p.m., but they must move their vehicles by 6:30 a.m. every weekday morning. Please read signs carefully before parking.
From at 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, October 10 and Tuesday, October 11, travelers can expect:
- No parking on both sides of SW Admiral Way between California Ave SW and 63rd Ave SW to keep a travel lane in each direction open
- Existing striping will be removed and new striping will be installed
- Temporary lane closures and lane shifts around the work area; flaggers will be present to direct traffic
- Sidewalks will remain open during work; people biking on the sidewalk must yield to people walking at all times
- People biking should use alternate routes during construction
- Construction equipment, trucks, noise and activity in the area
- Emergency response vehicles will have continual access
Over the past year and a half, SDOT has worked with the community on a new street design for SW Admiral Way between California Ave SW and 63rd Ave SW. The project will create a comfortable and predictable bike connection between Alki and the business district at California Ave SW. The new design will reduce speeding and collisions, and accommodate on-street parking. SDOT would like to thank the public for its patience while this work is completed.
