Golden Gardens Drive NW closed to vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists until roadway is restored

SEATTLE- Golden Gardens Drive Northwest was shut down December 3, 2007 after the record-breaking rainfall that saturated the region caused a collapse in a section of the roadway just west of View Avenue Northwest. Until Golden Gardens Drive NW has been repaired, continued use of the roadway presents a hazard to all types of users and may lead to more damage to the existing road.

The Seattle Department of Transportation will install additional signage and fencing on Sunday, May 11. These safety measures will remain in place until the roadway is restored and reopened to the public, which is presently scheduled for late fall. Access to all residences will be maintained.
