Trench Work To Begin On 1st Ave South This Week
The City of Burien is reporting on its website that trench work will begin today (Monday, Feb. 6) on Seattle City Light’s underground duct banks along 1st Avenue South.
This work will affect the inside southbound and center lanes between SW 146th to SW 140th Street.
Here’s more from the city:
Construction times will be between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m Monday through Friday. During this time, travel lanes will be restricted with intermittent closures where heavy equipment is in operation. Left turns will be limited and may require detouring to the next signalized intersection or as directed by construction signage. Businesses especially on the west side of 1st Avenue South should expect limited access at times with intermittent driveway closures.
Steel plates will be used and drivers are cautioned to drive slower on these plates. Caution signs will be in place to inform drivers especially motorcyclists.
All lanes will be open to traffic outside of the construction time. Again, please expect steel plates to be in one of those lanes and use caution when driving over them.
