Boren Avenue night work, next weekend and following week

SEATTLE- SDOT’s contractor plans to work at night on Boren Avenue from Friday, August 22 to Friday, August 29.

The contractor plans to pave Boren Avenue between Denny Way to Seneca Street from 10 p.m. Friday, August 22 to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 23, and if needed, also from 10 p.m. Saturday to 2 p.m. on Sunday, weather permitting. Several cross streets will be closed at Boren during night paving operations: Fairview Avenue, Virginia Street, Howell Street, Olive Way, Union Street and University Street. The following cross streets will remain open at Boren during paving, except for a few minutes when paving equipment passes: Stewart Street, Pine Street, and Pike Street.

The contractor then plans to work on the section of Boren between Broadway and Seneca Street for several nights during the week of August 25 to August 29, from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following day. The contractor will grind off the old asphalt surface to prepare for laying new asphalt.

During the day the crews will perform other work on Boren Avenue between Seneca Street and Denny Way, and on Madison Street between Terry Avenue and 18th Avenue East.

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.
