West Seattle Bridge Ramp Closures
Thursday Night and Friday Morning

SEATTLE-The Seattle Public Utilities will close many of the on- and off-ramps on the West Seattle Bridge for drain cleaning, from midnight on Thursday, January 1, to no later than 8 a.m. on Friday, January 2.

Drivers will still be able to access the bridge eastbound from Fauntleroy Way SW and Harbor Avenue SW, and westbound from I-5, but should plan their route considering exits from the bridge that will be closed.

Metro Transit buses and emergency vehicles will be let through closed ramps, but other drivers are advised to use the low-level Spokane Street Bridge.

Seattle Public Utility crews will clean the drains on the bridge to reduce the potential for hazards due to ponding.

Closed on- and off-ramps:

The Delridge Way SW on- ramp
SR99 northbound exit
First Avenue S exit

First Avenue S on-ramp
Harbor Ave SW off- ramp
SR 99 southbound to West Seattle Bridge
Delridge Way SW exit
Avalon Way SW exit
Admiral Way SW exit

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 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.
