Project to repair NE Ravenna Boulevard starts next week

March 16th, 2012 · No Comments

The Seattle Department of Transportation will begin a project this month to repair, repave and improve well worn NE Ravenna Boulevard between 15th Avenue NE and Green Lake.

Construction crews will be on the road starting as soon as March 21 and will work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m and occasionally at night. The project will happen in two phases with the first happening between I-5 and Green Lake and the second between 15th Avenue NE and I-5. In each phase they’ll work on the westbound lanes first then shift to the eastbound lanes. Crews will keep one lane open most of the time but SDOT says there will be times when one or two block detours will be needed. The bike lane will also be closed at times but signs will direct riders through or around the work zone.

The project includes repairing the roadway base, replacing the asphalt overlay, upgrading pedestrian curb ramps. The project also includes a new curb bulb at E. Green Lake Drive N and N.E. 71st Street. The bulb will reduce the amount of time it takes pedestrians to cross the street.
