Northbound lane closed on Aurora Avenue North

SEATTLE- Just south of Queen Anne Drive on Aurora Ave N the curb lane is closed to traffic and could remain closed through tomorrow morning’s commute. Two lanes remain open for northbound traffic. A private contractor working in the 2500 block of Aurora discovered a void in the roadway which appears to be 8 feet wide and 10 feet long. The Seattle Department of Transportation, SDOT, has closed the lane to traffic for roughly 200 feet in order for inspection and repairs to be made.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 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.
