Drivers who use State Route 509 in Burien should expect overnight travel delays during the next few months.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation are repaving northbound SR 509 between South 168th Street and South 112th Street. Crews will also repair and replace damaged guardrail in the median.

Beginning Sunday, June 11, up to one lane of northbound SR 509 and the left lane of southbound SR 509 will close overnight during the week to allow crews space to work in the median.

Work details

• Northbound SR 509: 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday

• Southbound SR 509: 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday

• The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph in the work zone

The work is part of a $4.6 million project to repave more than 3.5 miles of northbound SR 509 and repair and replace guardrail in the median. Work is scheduled to be complete in the fall.
