Major road to be closed for Sound Transit work

Editor The Thunderword Dec 10, 2020

South 272nd Street in Kent will undergo several lane closures starting Dec. 8.

Federal Way Link Extension construction will be occurring near the road from Dec. 8 through Dec. 22, causing on-and-off closures for the duration. The stretch of road that will be affected spans between I-5 exit 147 and 26th Ave. South.

The closures will only affect a single lane at a time. No detours will be in place, but travel times in the area will likely increase.
