Greenwood Avenue North Street Paving
One lane of traffic in each direction - expect traffic delays

SEATTLE—Greenwood Avenue North, between N 105 th and N 115 th streets will be restricted to one lane of traffic in each direction 24 hours per day, seven days per week, starting today, October 12 th and continuing through Friday, October 23 rd, weather permitting.  Parking will be prohibited on both sides of Greenwood Avenue.

SDOT’s contractor will be working in the inside traffic lanes between N 105th and N 112 th , saw cutting, and asphalt grinding and paving.    

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is widening this part of Greenwood Avenue North from four lanes to a five lanes with a center median and left-hand turn pockets.  New sidewalks and curb ramps will be added, street trees planted and new street lights installed.  These improvements will enhance pedestrian safety and keep people, goods and services moving. 

This project will be substantially completed by November 2009.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
