Due to an anticipated very rainy weekend, we will not be closing the intersection of SW Alaska St and 35th Ave SW this weekend. Our next intersection closure is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 27, through Monday, December 30. We will confirm this intersection closure through these email updates next week. See below for more information on what you can expect over the next few weeks.
 Holiday Hours 
We will not be working December 24, December 25, or January 1. We wish you all a happy holiday season!
35th Ave SW and SW Alaska St:
To rebuild the concrete roadway, we have restricted left turns onto SW Alaska St. To reach SW Alaska St, please proceed north on 35th Ave SW,  turn left at SW Avalon Way, left on Fauntleroy Way Sw and left on 37th Ave SW. Please expect:
  • No left turns from northbound 35th Ave SW onto SW Alaska St
  • This closure will be in place for several weeks
  • People driving on SW Alaska St can turn right or left on to 35th Ave SW
The next intersection closure at 35th Ave SW and SW Alaska St is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 27 to early Monday morning, December 30. This intersection closure is scheduled to begin at 9 AM to minimize night work and loud noise for near neighbors as we demolish, excavate, and rebuild the road. We will send an update next week with more information about this closure. This work is highly weather dependent and the dates for the weekend intersection closure are subject to change.
Zone E (35th Ave SW from SW Avalon Way to SW Alaska St):
To take advantage of predicted dry weather, we plan to work on Monday, December 23 to continue pouring and building concrete panels on the east side of 35th Ave SW. We plan to continue this work after the holidays on Thursday, December 26 and Friday December 27.
Zone F (SW Alaska St from 35th Ave SW to 36th Ave SW):
We have completed utility work at 36th Ave SW and SW Alaska St.  We anticipate continuing work on SW Alaska St as soon as Monday, December 30.  Please expect:
  • Loud noise, dust, and vibrations while we complete this work.
  • Temporary and intermittent driveway and alley closures
  • Pedestrian access to all businesses and residences will be maintained 
As we begin work on SW Alaska St, please follow King County Metro’s Rider Alerts to stay up to date on bus stop changes.
35th Ave SW and SW Avalon Way Intersection:
We have completed all roadway repairs and improvements in the intersection of 35th Ave SW and SW Avalon Way. We are in the process of putting down temporary striping and plan to return in the spring to paint final striping and remove the right turn from SW Avalon Way to Fauntleroy Way SW.
Project Status
As we wrap up 2019, we wanted to recap the work we have completed since beginning the project. Thank you, West Seattle, for your patience as we continue to work to complete the project on schedule in the spring/ summer of 2020.

Businesses are open! Please continue to visit businesses on 35th Ave SW and SW Avalon Way during construction. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times - please follow signed pedestrian detours.

Please do not disturb traffic control. When you disrupt cones and signage, it endangers other drivers, travelers, and our crews. You can be held accountable if an accident occurs. 
We recommend using other arterials such as Delridge Way SW and Fauntleroy Way SW when traveling north and south in West Seattle for the safety of those in adjacent neighborhoods and to avoid traffic impacts on our project corridor.  

What to expect in active work zones: 

  • Lots of construction activity including jackhammering, large trucks, machines, noise, dust, asphalt odors, and vibrations   
  • Traffic delays as construction vehicles enter or exit the work zone. For the safety of our crews, please drive carefully and watch your speed through the construction zone. 
  • Uniformed police officers or flaggers will typically be onsite  
  • Typical work hours from 7 AM – 7 PM 
  • Sidewalk and crosswalk detours. Please follow posted detours for people walking when you see them.  
  • People riding bikes are to merge with traffic in signed locations through our work zones and should use neighborhood greenways or extreme caution on 35th Ave SW. Consider traveling on alternate routes. 
  • There are upcoming bus stop changes. Sign up forMetro’s Rider Alerts to stay up to date on stop relocations. If a stop is relocated or a bus is detoured, signs will also be posted along the corridor.
