Sounder M Street to Lakewood track and signal project update

Written by 

Beginning Friday, March 19, at 9:00 p.m., the street crossing at Steilacoom Blvd. SW in Seattle is scheduled to be fully closed to traffic so the crossing can be demolished and reconstructed over the weekend. The crossing is expected to reopen to vehicles early the following Monday morning. A full weekend closure of the crossing was scheduled to reduce the impacts of a partial mid-week closure that would require additional working days.

Crews have been constructing a series of track sections and switches in the area near Steilacoom Blvd. SW that will serve as storage track for the Lakewood Layover Area project. Rail de-stressing and final surfacing continues in the area south of S. Chandler St.

The week of March 22, crews will begin track demolition and reconstruction on the section of track between S. 74th St. and Steilacoom Blvd. SW.
