North/Northeast 45th Street Paving Project: Background Information

Program Overview

The City's Arterial Asphalt and Concrete Program resurfaces a number of streets each summer. The projects are prioritized and selected by SDOT's Pavement Engineering and Management Section based on pavement condition, volume and type of traffic, identified needs of residents and businesses, opportunities for coordination with other capital projects, and identified maintenance and liability concerns. The main objectives of this 2006 Arterial Asphalt and Concrete Program are to improve street conditions to enhance mobility and safety, and to improve curb ramps, providing a safer and more convenient pedestrian environment.

Project Description

This project will improve pavement conditions on the streets outlined below and will improve accessibility by installing new and upgrading existing curb ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. In general, the paving will involve grinding the top 2 inches of the surface, repairing the sub-surface base where needed, and then re-paving with 2 inches of asphalt.

The streets that we will be working on in your neighborhood this summer are as follows:
  • N/NE 45th Street from N Midvale Place to 15th Avenue NE
  • NE 45th Street from Sand Point Way NE to 43rd Avenue NE
  • Stone Way N (drainage work only) from N 34th Street to N 45th Street
  • N 41st Avenue (drainage work only) from Stone Way N to Ashworth Avenue N
Project Schedule

The project is scheduled to begin in early August 2006 and continue through Spring 2007. Although a detailed schedule will not be available until a contractor has been selected, the project is does have several scheduling requirements that will influence the sequence of work. All work on the east side of Interstate 5 must be completed by September 22, 2006. The remaining work on N 45th Street has been divided into two phases at Burke Ave N. The contractor must complete one phase before beginning the second phase.

Project Communication

SDOT will distribute timely construction notices to affected residents/businesses throughout construction. Updates will also be posted on this website.
