Third Avenue To Be Closed for Paving This Weekend – Weather Permitting  

SEATTLE – This weekend, Saturday, November 7, and Sunday, November 8, Third Avenue will be closed between Pike and Stewart streets, and Stewart and Virginia streets.  The work will begin as early as 8 a.m. and conclude by 10 p.m.  each day. During the closure, a contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation will replace a number of concrete panels on Third Avenue between Pike and Virginia streets. Stewart Street will remain open for motorists crossing Third Avenue, but traffic will not be allowed to turn onto Third from Stewart. Detour signage will direct motorists northbound and southbound on Third Avenue around the construction zone. 

In order to minimize the impact of this construction project, this panel work has been scheduled to take place primarily on weekends.

Please note that the work is weather dependent and the schedule may be revised accordingly.  Mid-week work may also be necessary to complete the project.

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.
