SR 900/68th Ave S Vicinity – Pedestrian Safety – Phase 2 PCCP & Deck Overlay

From 5 a.m. Monday, March 13 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, March 28, workers will close the right lane on westbound SR 900 near 68th Avenue South. During the closure, they will build the new sidewalk and give it time to cure before reopening.

Project overview

In the Bryn Mawr-Skyway area of King County between Seattle and Renton, just west of 68th Avenue South, we are working in conjunction with King County Metro to build a section of sidewalk and a raised platform for pedestrians to access a Metro bus stop on the east side of the highway.

August 2022-May 2023
Project status
$1.31 million

What to expect

During construction, people who use the highway should plan for intermittent overnight lane closures and a 15-day right lane closure on SR 900 near 68th Avenue South. People who normally would use the shoulder of SR 900 as a walkway will be rerouted to an area with cane-detectable barriers, signs and a temporary asphalt path. The existing bus stop will move temporarily when necessary, but current bus routes will continue to serve the area and stops.

This project will add a section of sidewalk on the east side of SR 900 near 68th Avenue South to provide a raised walkway to a bus stop.
