6th Ave Paving Project
Repaved road, repaired sidewalks, and new Marion St rapid flashing beacon
Last updated: August 31, 2017
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to repave 6th Ave between Stewart St and Yesler Way. Each year, Seattle rehabilitates arterial streets to make them safer and more comfortable to travel on and to extend their useful life. We anticipate major construction will begin as soon as spring 2018 and take 4 months to complete. In the meantime, repairs and replacements of any deficient curb ramps will start as soon as October of this year.
This project was selected and prioritized based on pavement condition, traffic volume, opportunities to improve the roadway's operations, and more. Additionally, keeping our transportation system in a state of good repair helps lower the cost of future maintenance.
The project includes:
Details about the construction schedule and sequencing of construction will be available closer to the start of construction.
