Eighth Ave NW Closed Saturday for Construction

SEATTLE- SDOT paving crews will work on Eighth Avenue Northwest from NW 83rd Street to NW 85th Street on Saturday, September 20. The street will be closed to all through traffic except Metro Transit from 7:30 a.m. on Saturday until 8 a.m. on Sunday, allowing time for new pavement to cure. Flaggers will assist traffic that will be detoured at NW 80th and NW 85th to Third Avenue NW and 15th Avenue Northwest. The street will remain open for pedestrians.

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.
