Bridge Painting – Fourth Avenue Over Argo Rail Yard Rescheduled

Painting of the Fourth Avenue South Bridge over the Argo Railroad Yard in SODO, previously scheduled for the evenings of April 15-17 has been rescheduled due to rain.  The work, which will require the closure of both the northbound and southbound curb lanes, will instead take place this coming Saturday, April 19, from 7 a.m. until midnight.

The lane closures are needed to enable the crew to paint the steel railings on the bridge.  (The crew is also painting the structural steel components on the underside of the roadway.)  One travel lane in each direction will be maintained, and the sidewalk on the west side of the bridge will remain open.

The Seattle Department of Transportation is repainting this bridge, as well as the First Avenue South Bridge over the same Argo Railroad Yard, as part of the City’s ongoing asset preservation effort that provides for the periodic painting of each of the City’s structural steel bridges.
