Revised: First Avenue South Paving

SEATTLE-Traffic may be restricted to one lane in each direction on First Avenue South between East Marginal Way South and South Hudson Street from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Monday, July 28 while SDOT’s contractor paves the southbound lanes. Paving of the northbound lanes will take place at a later date when surface preparations are completed.

Paving overlay work has been delayed due to an unexpectedly shallow 105-year old water main which crews are working carefully to avoid disrupting while preparing for paving.

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.
