Night paving on Elliott Ave West and 15th Ave West next week

SEATTLE- SDOT’s contractor plans to pave Elliott Avenue West between Denny Way and West Lee Street next week, weather permitting. The crews will pave at night to minimize traffic disruption on Monday, May 5 through Friday May 9. The contractor will set up for the work at 7 p.m. each night and may continue this work until 6 a.m. the following morning. While they are paving, at least one lane in each direction will remain open to traffic.

The contractor may continue with other work in the street during the day. A contractor for a private development is also working on Elliott Avenue West.

This project includes funding from the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.

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.
