Fauntleroy Way SW-- Final Paving Starts Thursday

SEATTLE-SDOT’s paving project on Fauntleroy is nearing completion. The final overlay begins tomorrow (Thursday, August 27) and is expected to be finished by Friday night. Traffic will be shifted several times throughout the day but uniformed police officers will be on site to assist traffic. Crews expect to continue into the evening, working long days in an attempt to complete all the paving before the weekend.

Shortly after the final overlay is completed, the contractor will begin striping the roadway with the new channelization (lane configuration). Barrels and caution tape will remain in place until all of the striping is completed. During the same time, incidental work will also be finished.

Work is expected to wrap up in mid-September. SDOT thanks West Seattle travelers for their patience.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
