6th Ave Paving Project

Updated October 27, 2016


The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to repave 6th Ave between Stewart St and Yesler Way in the summer of 2017. Each year, Seattle rehabilitates arterial streets to make them safer and more comfortable to travel on and to extend their useful life. Construction will take approximately 4 months to complete.

This project was selected and prioritized based on pavement condition, traffic volume, opportunities to improve the roadways operations, and more. Additionally, keeping our transportation system in a state of good repair helps lower the cost of future maintenance. The project design includes:

  • Repairs to the underlying base asphalt and identifying areas where full reconstruction is necessary
  • Reconstruction of the curb lane and curb ramps at select location on both sides of the street
  • Grind down existing pavement and repave the street from curb to curb
  • Installation of a rapid flashing beacon at the intersection of Marion St
  • Repair to sidewalks at select locations
  • Replace traffic detection sensors

Details about the construction schedule and sequencing of construction will be available closer to the start of construction in summer 2017.

Project Budget & Funding

The $2.37M project budget is being funded by the voter-approved Transportation Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Learn more about the levy at
