Latest on 15th Ave NE project

December 21st, 2010 · 3 Comments

SDOT tells us they still plan to start work on the 15th Avenue NE reconstruction project during the first week of January.  The work will take place between NE Pacific Street and NE 45th Street.

Here are some things to keep in mind once construction begins: 

  • The roadway will remain open with one lane of traffic in each direction on weekdays.
  • On weekends, the roadway will be reduced to one lane northbound only. Southbound lanes will be closed at NE 45th Street and southbound traffic will be detoured via Brooklyn Avenue NE.
  • Work will be ongoing until the beginning of June 2011. 
  • Parking will be intermittently prohibited on the intersecting streets as work progresses.
  • Bus stops along 15th Avenue NE will be consolidated, and transit agencies will communicate any route changes to customers directly.
  • Nearby residents and businesses should expect noise, dust, and nighttime light impacts.
