From the BMS West Seattle Events Calendarand other insights, here’s what happened on your last Bridgeless Saturday:
TRAFFIC ALERTS: Sure SDOTThe main work of preparing to reopen the West Seattle Bridge – the exact time is not announced – and this work is happening today:
Before the reopening on Sunday and after, we will have various SDOT work crews near the bridge and along the detour routes. They will remove many signs, such as detour signs and low bridge restriction signs. They will also remove traffic control features such as barricades, barrels and digital messaging signs.
As part of the Reconnect West Seattle program, in addition to ongoing street maintenance and safety improvements, we will be completing a few projects this weekend.
-We started paving parts of SW Admiral Way last week, and will continue paving this Saturday.
-Saturday and Sunday we will be replacing the concrete panels at the intersection of 16th Ave SW and SW Webster St.
Work is expected to begin at 7 a.m. and end around 4 p.m. Please expect delays, drive carefully through work areas and follow directions from signs and flaggers. Traffic will be maintained in both directions during the end of the works.
