Fauntleroy Expressway closure starts later next Tuesday and Thursday nights

information from SDOT

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) advises drivers that the overnight closures of the Fauntleroy Expressway for bearing pad replacement will be delayed until 11:00 p.m. next Tuesday, June 14, and 10:30 p.m. next Thursday, June 16, due to the large crowds expected to attend Copa America Centenario soccer games at CenturyLink Field on those evenings.

The overnight closures of the Expressway that run from Sunday night through Friday morning normally begin at 9:00 p.m. and will be delayed on these two nights only. As is the case with any of these overnight closures of the Expressway, the road will reopen at 5:00 a.m. the following morning.

Construction crews are replacing the 674 bearing pads on the Fauntleroy Expressway, a complicated job requiring the bridge to be jacked from underneath to access and replace the bearing pads. Construction crews set the jacks from underneath the bridge during the day, with the actual jacking and bearing pad replacement occurring at night when the bridge is closed. The work began in mid-May, and is expected to require 40-50 weeknight closures to complete.

Three story townhouse on Delridge up for Streamlined Design Review

A three story four unit townhouse structure to be built at 5414 Delridge Way SW is up for a Streamlined Design Review through Seattle's DPD. Surface parking would be provided for four vehicles and the existing structures would be demolished.

It is project number 3024488 and is being designed by NK Architects. The project is owned by Eric Christianson.

From the proposal:

The proposed project consists of a street facing 3-story structure containing 2 commercial units and a separate 3-story structure containing 4 residential units. The owner has developed three similarly-planned projects just two lots to the south. The main tenant of the commercial space will be the owner's business, Community Care, which provides services for children with behavioral challenges. It is a design goal to build a recognizable building that incorporate San Fransisco inspired Victorian detailing similar to a historic photo from 1906 that he has long admired. It is the intent of this project to inspire future development in Delridge that takes great care in materials, detailing and design whatever its style may be.
