Woodlawn Ave NE paving to begin tomorrow (Thursday)

What do you think? (1 Comment) August 3, 2011 at 8:41PM

Updated Thursday, 11:10 a.m. with bus reroute information.


Paving crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will pave two blocks of Woodlawn Ave NE, between 4th Ave NE and NE Ravenna Blvd, tomorrow (Thursday, August 4, 2011) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Crews grinded off the old pavement last week.

One lane will remain open, shared by both directions of traffic with the assistance of traffic flaggers. The sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians.

From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Metro Route 26 will be rerouted off of Woodlawn Ave NE in this two block stretch. During this time, Route 26 heading toward downtown Seattle will travel instead via southbound NE Ravenna Blvd, westbound NE 65th St and then southbound on Latona Ave NE to its regular route. Heading toward east Green Lake, northbound Route 26 will not be affected.

For more information about the project, call Steve Hoyos at (206) 386-1218.

    the bus reroute goes a long way to explaining why three cars were wiped out by a metro today in front of sugarsugar.   That’s a more than 90degree turn:  the drivers need a heads up and the corner should be set up with no parking signs for the duration.
