Road Construction Updates


The following is Federal Way’s current and anticipated major street construction (2-24-23)

(Note: minor road and/or short term street impacts are not reflected here).


Sound Transit – Federal Way Link Extension (FWLE)

Big changes coming to downtown Federal Way around the Federal Way Transit Center.

In order to reconstruct 23rd Ave S and S 317th Street, traffic patterns around the Federal Way Transit Center need to be modified over the next 18+ months.

Stage 1:

23rd Ave S - S 320th to S 317th: LONG TERM LANE CLOSURE - Northbound traffic only on 23rd Ave S between S 320th to S 317th starting March 4, 2023 (through July 2023). Southbound traffic will be redirected to Pete Von Reichbauer Way.

S 317th - 23rd Ave S to 28th Ave S: The two-way center turn lane will be removed starting March 4, 2023. Two-way traffic will be maintained.
