City Says Phase II of 1st Ave South Improvement Project to Begin Again
The City of Burien announced this week that Phase II of the 1st Ave South Improvement Project – from SW 146th to SW 140th Street – has begun starting Tuesday, March 5.
“After the holiday and winter shutdown, DPK will be continuing its construction again starting Tuesday March 5,” reads a note on the city’s website. “Construction will run through May possibly into June. DPK will be completing the remaining sidewalk and curb/gutter. They will also be installing the street lighting system. After which, new traffic signals will be installed. Once these have been completed, the road surfacing will be overlaid with new asphalt.”
The city adds:
DPK will be placing its traffic control in the work zone. Lanes will be limited at times with closures possible. Please plan travel time accordingly and drive safely and responsibly.

F-Line RapidRide and Route 120 Improvements
Contractor will be installing traffic loops at the intersection of SW 150th and 1st Avenue South and the intersection of S 156th and 1st Avenue South in the next week.
