On Monday, June 8 we will be kicking off construction on Delridge Way SW as part of the Delridge Way SW – RapidRide H Line project! Construction for the project is divided into three different zones.
Zone A – West Seattle Bridge to SW Findlay St
Zone B – SW Findlay St to north of SW Orchard St
Zone C – North of SW Orchard St to White Center
We will work in all three zones at the same time working from north to south and starting on the west side of Delridge. No-Parking signs will be posted on both sides of the road in each phase of work in order to shift traffic around the work zones.
What to expect the week of June 8
No-Parking signs may also be placed where we need to stage equipment and materials
We will stage equipment along the parking strip and on select side streets throughout the corridor
Some residential side streets may be closed to accommodate staged materials. Stay tuned for locations to be identified.
No-Parking signs will be removed when possible as our work changes
Continued tree protection work along Delridge Way SW
Temporary lighting and signal installation on the corridor
In each of the three work zones, travel lanes will be reduced to one lane in each direction with restricted turns. Please follow posted traffic signs.
We will begin working at the same time near the West Seattle High-Rise Bridge, SW Findlay St and SW Orchard St intersections and work our way from north to south.
Stay informed during construction Construction timelines are always subject to change and we will continue to provide updates. The best way to stay up to date about project benefits, detours, work hours, lane closures, and other improvements is by signing up to get our weekly construction updates.
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 construction parking restrictions for weeks at a time
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.govor call 206-775-8739.
