SDOT Traffic Alert: Long term closure for West Emerson Overpass project
Heads up on a major repair project to the Emerson Street Overpass that will impact traffic on 15th Avenue as well as the alternate routes in and out of Magnolia (Dravus street through Interbay and the Magnolia Bridge). Said project will run from October 9th through the end of the year.
"..SDOT has decided to combine the replacement of this girder, which will require demolishing the northern side of the overpass, with the renewal of the road surface on top of the road deck. This resurfacing (with a 1.5 inch thick layer of concrete) will protect the existing road structure from future corrosion as well as provide an even driving surface for the portion of the overpass that must be replaced. The project will require both a long-term closure of the overpass (beginning October 9) and a short-term closure of 15th Avenue W underneath the overpass.."
