The Delridge Way SW - RapidRide H Line project is preparing for construction to start as early as June 8 and wrap up in 2022. RapidRide H Line service is scheduled to begin in 2021.

The closure of the West Seattle High-Rise Bridge has significantly impacted the way people move through West Seattle in recent months. As we continue to make on the ground improvements to keep people moving now, we will also continue to invest in long-term projects that help us build an even stronger, connected, and more livable West Seattle. It is critical that we implement both short- and long-term improvements while we simultaneously pursue all options available to reopen the high-rise bridge, which is why we are moving forward with this much-needed project along Delridge Way SW to add a new rapid transit line, improve safety, enhance bike infrastructure, and repair roads in poor condition. 


Construction is scheduled to begin as soon as the week of June 8 to start working while the weather is dry. Construction timelines are always subject to change and we will continue to provide updates if and when they are impacted. Please visit our online open house to learn more about the project design and construction, and ask questions.


Please read on below for more information about what to expect during construction.
Delridge Way SW will be open to traffic during construction. We will maintain one lane of traffic in each direction at most times during construction, though temporary detours may be needed.
What to expect during construction
Generally, we anticipate working weekdays between 7 AM and 7 PM.  Impacts will include:
  • Noise, dust, and large vehicle traffic
  • Temporary parking restrictions for weeks at a time
  • Short term driveway closures
  • Some nighttime and weekend work to minimize traffic impacts
  • Periodic traffic detours
  • Vehicle lane shifts around work zones
  • Some full closures of major intersections
  • Pedestrian and bicycle detours around the work
  • Temporary utility service impacts
  • Flaggers to help direct traffic
  • Temporary bus detours and bus stop relocations
If you have concerns about accessibility or other impacts of construction, please send us your address, contact information, and concerns so that we can better understand and work together throughout construction. You can reach us at DelridgeTransit@Seattle.gov or call 206-775-8739.

At the City of Seattle, we are continuing to follow guidance from federal, state, and local leaders and our public health partners regarding COVID-19. To keep our crews and the public safe, we have required all contractors to submit updated jobsite Health and Safety Plans to ensure that they comply with the safety and social distancing requirements in the Governor’s Order.
