In phase three of the Delridge repaving project starting May 15 traffic will take a circuitous route. Traffic will be redirected West on SW Holden Street, then South on 35th Avenue S, then East on SW Thistle Street, then South on Delridge Way SW.

Update: Detour of southbound Delridge Way SW at SW Holden starts May 15

Information from SDOT
Beginning May 15, southbound traffic on Delridge Way Southwest in West Seattle will be detoured at Southwest Holden Street and the currently detoured stretch from Southwest Thistle to Southwest Trenton streets will be reopened. The closure will allow the contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation to reconstruct the roadway and install storm drains. The new detour, from Holden to Thistle streets, is expected to remain in place through mid July. This work is Phase 3 of the project that is rebuilding much of Delridge Way Southwest.

Traffic will be redirected (see attached map):
· West on SW Holden Street
· South on 35th Avenue S
· East on SW Thistle Street
· South on Delridge Way SW

Delridge will remain open to northbound traffic except for intersection work. Local access to businesses and residents will be maintained.

This is a five-phase project. At the end of the Phase 3, construction activity will move north to Phase 4, between SW Orchard and SW Holden streets.

The Delridge Way Southwest Paving Project is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
