Open House on Delridge Way paving project is Oct. 2 at Sealth

Project will take from 9 months to a year to complete

A pre-construction Open House is being held tomorrow, Oct. 2, to detail the upcoming paving project along one mile of Delridge Way SW. The open house will run from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Chief Sealth High School, 2600 SW Thistle Street in the Learning Resource Center (also known as International Library).

The work on Delridge Way SW will run from SW Orchard to SW Henderson Street and will start in January 2013.

SDOT advises that the project may also include Delridge Way SW and 16th Avenue SW, both between SW Henderson and SW Roxbury streets, depending on project costs and the funding available. This work is expected to take 9 to 12 months, depending on the final scope of the project.

This paving maintenance project provides SDOT with the opportunity to reconfigure lanes on a short section of Delridge Way SW to make the roadway safer for all travel modes. Information on those proposed changes, from SW Myrtle to SW Keynon streets, will also be available at the upcoming project open house. Other details can be found at:
