Construction On 8th Ave SW Causing Delays On Sylvester Bridge Detour Route
It’s summer, which means construction season, and the City of Burien is warning residents to expect delays on 8th Ave SW between SW 160th and Sylvester Road (adjacent to the Highline Medical Center), as major storm drainage improvements are taking place.
The road will be closed to through-traffic at times, with limited access over the next few weeks.
Drivers are encouraged to take take alternate routes to avoid the construction area if at all possible.
Motorists using 8th Ave SW as part of the detour from Sylvester Road, where a bridge is being replaced should use 10th Ave SW instead.
Now this wouldn’t normally be considered news unless you used this road for, oh I don’t know…maybe as the assigned official Detour for the closure of Sylvester Road Bridge perhaps?
We say do yourself a favor and just avoid the area in general…
