NE Ravenna Blvd potholes continue to be repaired, repaving project still on track for 2012

Green Lake resident Jill Beck wrote to us with an update, via the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), on the potholes on NE Ravenna Blvd between NE 65th St and 8th Ave NE.

“The potholes are everywhere,” Jill says, “on both sides of Ravenna.”

Jill reported the potholes to SDOT and received a note back from Peg Nielsen of the SDOT Communications Office.

“Our crews have been regularly filling potholes,” Nielsen said, “and will continue to do so.”

According to SDOT’s Pothole Repair Status map, SDOT crews have patched multiple holes on the NE Ravenna Blvd corridor on more than 12 occasions since the beginning of 2011.

“However, because the street is in such poor condition, potholes patching doesn’t really solve the problem,” Nielsen said.  ”The asphalt needs to be ground down, the base repaired, and then re-paved.”

SDOT has scheduled a repaving project for Ravenna Blvd in 2012. The street will be completely repaved from 15th Ave NE to E Green Lake Way N.

You can report potholes to SDOT via this form or at (206) 684-ROAD (7623).

    This road is a minefield! In the past three weeks I have broken three (3) spokes on this stretch of road. This is more than the last ten years combined!

    When is this going to be repaired?

    And what happened to the the sign that note the left lane is a bicycle lane?!? Everyday I see more and more drivers using this as a traffic lane.

    The sooner the better. I just blew out my bike tire today on the roughest patch between 12th Ave NE and Roosevelt Ave NE.
