Lower SW Spokane Paving project Lane Closures and Restrictions expected in coming weeks

This past week crews have started safety improvement work to repave, reconstruct sidewalks and curb ramps, and make other improvements along SW Spokane St from SW Klickitat Way to East Marginal Way S.  Construction is expected to last approximately three months. Please note that work planned is subject to change. SDOT appreciates the public’s patience while this work is being completed.

The project will require the closure or restrictions in some traffic lanes during active construction over the next few weeks, but will not require any full street closures requiring detours. Temporary pedestrian/bike pathways will detour around the construction zone on the West Seattle Bridge Trail.
