This Weekend Ninth Avenue N. becomes Two-way

SEATTLE- The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making Ninth Avenue N. from Broad Street to Denny Way easier to use for motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Ninth Avenue N. is being permanently converted to two-way operations, bicycle lanes are being added, some crosswalks repainted and parking retained. Weather permitting, the conversion is scheduled to happen this weekend. Here is what to expect:

Saturday, April 26
Ninth Avenue N. and cross streets will be closed to car access from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The closure boundary is from Mercer Street to Denny Way, and from Westlake Avenue N. to Eighth Avenue N. After 5 p.m., the street will begin operating as two-way from Broad Street to Denny Way.

Sunday, April 27
The street will be open on Sunday, but parking restrictions will remain in place on both sides of Ninth Ave N. from Republican to Denny.

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.
