Paving on Roosevelt Way NE Starts Tomorrow

SEATTLE – Tuesday, December 8, a Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) crew will begin working in the two right lanes southbound on Roosevelt Way NE between NE 64 th Street and NE 55 thStreet.  The work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.  The SDOT crew will grind down the surface layer of asphalt in the curb right lane and part of the middle right hand lane.   On Wednesday, December 9, the crew will pave the lanes, opening them up to traffic as the new asphalt cures.   If needed, the crew will return and complete the paving work by 3p.m. on Friday, December 11.  During the project, the sidewalk will remain open to pedestrians and access to the businesses will be maintained.  Motorists should plan on a slight delay through the work zone.

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.
