Repair Work in the University Business District on Saturday

SEATTLE - This Saturday, June 27, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will be working in the heart of the University business district. The work will include sidewalk repairs on the northeast corner of NE 45th Street and University Way NE. During the work, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the sidewalk will be closed from 15th Avenue NE to University Way NE on the north side of NE 45th Street and north from NE 45th Street to the crosswalk mid-block on University Way NE. In addition, the westbound curb lane of NE 45th Street from 15th Avenue NE to University Way NE will be coned off to provide worker safety.

SDOT will also be working on 15th Avenue NE between NE 45th Street and NE 47th Street where the crews will be repairing the street. Traffic will be reduced down to one lane for all traffic on 15th Avenue NE during the work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A police officer will direct traffic through the intersection at 15th Avenue NE and NE 47th Street. Please plan on possible delays through the work zone.

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.
