First Avenue South Paving

SEATTLE- Starting Monday, May 19, SDOT’s contractor will begin working on First Avenue South in the SODO area. This year the street will be resurfaced from East Marginal Way South to South Stacy Street, and from South Spokane Street to East Marginal Way South.

Starting Monday and until mid-July, SDOT’s contractor will work during the day on sidewalks and curb ramps along the entire project area, starting at East Marginal Way South and working northward. There may be pedestrian detours at times, and parking restrictions near intersections. Normal work hours will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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.
