Construction Work on Fairview Ave North this Weekend

SEATTLE -SDOT will be working in the 1200 and 1300 blocks of Fairview Avenue North this weekend, repairing the support under this elevated roadway. One lane will remain open in each direction from 8 a.m. Saturday, February 21 until 5 p.m. Sunday, February 22. Although the location of the repair is under the bridge, the construction equipment must be parked on the roadway above in order to access the work area. The lanes must remain closed to reduce the weight on the roadway while the new concrete under the bridge cures.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 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.
