City Light Work May Cause Traffic Delays on 1st Ave South this Weekend
The City of Burien announced on its website that Seattle City Light will be installing their wiring for the underground electrical system beginning at SW 140th or SW 146th Street this weekend – through and Sept. 1 – from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This is part of the ongoing Phase II project.
Traffic Control will be in place starting at 5 a.m. and will remain in place until Saturday evening, Sept. 1.
City Light will also be working alongside DPK on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday the week of Sept. 3.
“This will be a busy week for traffic,” the website states; it continues:
In general, the construction zone along the project corridor will have four travel lanes for the next several months. For Seattle City Light’s immediate work area, the travel lanes will reduce to 2 lanes (north and southbound lanes) near SW 146th Street. This will cause some backup on 1st Avenue South. Please remember the speed limit is reduced in the work zone.
Left turns are limited and may require detouring to the next signalized intersection or as directed by construction signage. Businesses should expect limited access at times with intermittent driveway closures. Business access will be maintained. Please support local businesses in this area.
For more project information, please see Project Website.
Please be patient and plan for some extra travel time.
