Slide Blocks Rainier Ave S

Updated: 10:45 am

SEATTLE--Rainier Avenue South remains closed due to a landslide last night in the 9700 block, south of the intersection with Seward Park Avenue South. Cleanup is in progress although SDOT managers expect the street to remain closed much of the day while engineers further assess the situation. Traffic from the south is detoured starting near the Renton Municipal Airport to Renton Avenue South, then to 51st Avenue South, returning to Rainier Avenue South.

In West Seattle, a fallen tree blocks Fauntleroy Way SW at 39th Avenue SW. SDOT crews were dispatched to clear the roadway.
