A Street SE - 3rd Street SE/Cross Street SE to East Valley Highway Access Road

On Monday, January 28, 2019 through approximately Friday, March 8, 2019, construction work by Titan Earthwork for the A Street SE Corridor Signal Safety & Operations Improvements project will require intermittent lane closures and disruptions on A Street SE between 3rd Street SE/Cross Street SE and East Valley Highway Access Road.

To accommodate commuter traffic lane restriction hours are as follows:

  • Northbound lane closures are permitted between the hours of 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM
  • Southbound lane closures are permitted between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM

This work is dependent on weather and may be re-scheduled without further notice.

​Access to residences and businesses within the project area will be maintained during construction, but delays should be expected.

Auburn Way South – Muckleshoot Plaza to Dogwood Street SE

The Auburn Way South Corridor Improvements Project (Muckleshoot Plaza to Dogwood Street SE) is underway. When complete, this project will improve pedestrian and vehicle safety and will help reduce congestion and traffic delays. The roadway will remain open during construction and access to all businesses will be maintained. However, the construction work will require temporary lane closures and shifts that will cause delays. Lane closures will generally be limited to certain times to reduce their impacts:

To accommodate commuter traffic lane restriction hours are as follows:

  • Eastbound lane closures from 7:00 AM and 2:00 PM
  • Westbound lane closures from 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM 

Heavy congestion is anticipated during the lane restriction hours note above; please plan accordingly.

In addition, the speed limit through the work zone is also being reduce to 35 mph due to the narrowed lanes and lane shifts. This will provide a safer work zone for our construction crews onsite as well as the traveling public driving through the project limits.

Access to residences and businesses within the project area will be maintained during construction. This work is dependent on weather.
