Construction on Southbound East Marginal Way South

SEATTLE--A private contractor working for Union Pacific Railroad is repairing pavement around tracks on southbound East Marginal Way South (Highway 99) at Diagonal Avenue South. Traffic is constricted at this point. Drivers will need to slow down as they pass the off ramp to the West Seattle Bridge and approach the construction area. The contractor plans to work until 3 p.m. today, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow.

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.
