2011 AAC Georgetown Streets: Ellis Ave S/S Albro Pl /Corson Ave S/East Marginal Way S

Project Update – October 5, 2011

The Original 2011 Georgetown Street Paving Project is now substantially complete!
Additional Paving To Take Place on E Marginal Way between 4th Avenue S and S Michigan Street

In May of 2011, work began to repave several streets in the Georgetown neighborhood:

  • Ellis Avenue S between E Marginal Way S and S Albro Street
  • S Albro Street between Ellis Avenue S and Stanley Avenue S
  • East Marginal Way between 4th Avenue S and the Seattle city limit
  • Corson Avenue S between E Marginal Way and S Michigan Street

The original 2011 Georgetown Street Paving Project was substantially complete on September 27, 2011.  Additional paving will take place on E Marginal Way between 4th Avenue S and S Michigan Street.  As a result of some minor savings in the 2011 paving program, SDOT has elected to extend the project limits to the north to encompass the entire length of E Marginal Way that was originally identified in the BTG plan several years ago before cuts forced a scale back.

We are happy to report that the project has reached substantial completion, ahead of schedule and on budget.  Some finishing work remains, and will be completed within the next month to close out the project.

Project Contacts:

Also in Georgetown, but as part of the Airport Way South Viaduct Over Argo Railroad Yard Rehabilitation Project Airport Way South between S Lucille and S Hardy streets will be paved.  For information about the paving portion of that bridge project click here.
