Night work on First Avenue South

SEATTLE- A contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will work at night this week on First Avenue South between South Stacy Street and South Dearborn. Crews will work tonight (Monday), Tuesday and Wednesday, September 15-18, from 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. The crews will grind away the old pavement and lay preliminary pavement on this stretch of roadway. At least one lane will be open in each direction.

Other work will continue during the day on First Avenue South with occasional lane closures during off-peak hours. The contractor will correct a previously paved area in a 600-foot section of a single lane between South Mead and South Findlay. Crews will work on final restoration, clean-up and pavement markings in areas where paving is complete.

The entire project is scheduled for completion by the end of October.

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.
