SDOT advises travelers that city crews will close the W Nickerson St on-ramp to southbound 15th Ave W next week to support encampment cleanup.

From 5 a.m. on Monday, March 13, to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 17, travelers can expect the following:

  • The W Nickerson St on-ramp to southbound 15th Ave W be closed between 13th Ave W and 15th Ave W.
  • Detours will be in place for drivers intending to head south on 15th Ave W from W Nickerson St:
    • Passenger vehicles will continue west on W Nickerson St, turn left onto the W Nickerson St overpass, turn east on W Emerson St and south onto 15th Ave W
    • Large trucks and commercial vehicles will continue west on W Nickerson St, turn left onto the W Nickerson St overpass, turn west on W Emerson St, south on Gilman Ave W, onto 20th Ave W, turn east on W Dravus St, and south onto 15th Ave W. The turn from eastbound W Dravus St to southbound 15th Ave W will require the largest vehicles to take two lanes to make the turn.
