Night work on Madison Street; work to begin on Boren

SEATTLE-SDOT’s paving contractor plans to work at night on Madison Street between Terry and 10th avenues during the week of June 30 to July 3rd. The crews will grind off the old asphalt surface between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. At least one lane in each direction will remain open to traffic.

Crews will perform other roadway work on Madison Street during the day. Some side streets may be temporarily closed at Madison in the work area.

This week paving on Boren Avenue starts with sidewalk work and initial pavement base repair between Seneca Street and Denny Way.

This paving project is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters. Other major paving projects this year are on First Avenue South, the Elliott /15th Avenue West corridor, and Fifth Avenue.

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.
