SEATTLE-Next week SDOT’s contractor will pave at night in the southbound lanes of 15th Avenue West, between West Nickerson Street and West Galer Street. From August 5 to August 8, three ramps to the southbound 15th Ave/Elliott Ave W corridor will be closed at times with detours in place. The detours will be necessary to accommodate the paving work.
On the nights of Tuesday, August 5 and Friday, August 8, traffic that would use the West Emerson Street on-ramp to travel southbound 15th Avenue West will be detoured northbound across the Ballard Bridge, and then will circle back to travel southbound on 15th Avenue West. On Tuesday this detour will be in place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. On Friday this detour will be from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m.
Also on the nights of Tuesday, August 5 and Friday, August 8, traffic from West Dravus Street that is headed southbound on 15th Avenue West will be detoured from Dravus Street to the Magnolia Bridge by way of 20th Avenue West, then to Thorndyke Avenue West, West Galer Street and across the Magnolia Bridge, and then southbound on 15th Avenue West. These Tuesday and Friday night detours at Dravus Street will be in place from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
On the nights of Wednesday, August 6, and Thursday, August 7, the ramps from the Magnolia Bridge to southbound Elliott Avenue West will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Traffic will be detoured to the Dravus Street overpass by way of Thorndike Avenue West and and 20th Avenue West.
