4th Ave S Paving Project
Taking care of basics
Updated April 13, 2017
Construction for the whole project will last 6 months, but the duration of work in front of a given property or block segment will be about 2 months.
4th Ave S is a major north/south arterial in SODO, carrying some 35,000 vehicles per day, many of them trucks and it’s classified as a major truck street. The street is primarily lined with businesses, along with government offices and maintenance yards.We are repaving 4th Ave S between S Royal Brougham Way and S Spokane St in 2017.
Before repaving the street, a 2-inch deep layer of the existing asphalt will be ground off. Crews will then evaluate the underlying base asphalt and identify areas where full depth reconstruction is warranted.
More details about the construction schedule and sequencing will available when the construction contractor is selected.
The project has a design Budget of $882,000 and construction budget of $14,850,000. It is being funded by a $1,550,000 Freight Mobility Strategic Investment Board Grant and the Move Seattle Levy, approved by voters in 2015.

Other SDOT projects in the area
Lander St Bridge Project – S Lander St between 1st Ave S and 4th Ave S that carries over 13,000 vehicles per day, as well as some 1,400 pedestrians, and 100 bicyclists. However, some 100 trains per day block this traffic, closing the street 4 and a half hours each day. To address this problem, SDOT will build a bridge on S Lander between 1st Ave S and 4th Ave S. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018 and take approximately 2 years to complete.
