What to expect during construction

Construction began the week of April 14, 2014, and is expected to be complete in September. Normal work hours will be 7 AM. to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, with some weekend and weeknight work. In order to reduce the impact to surrounding communities, work has been divided into two zones and will be constructed one phase at a time.

Zone 1: The first zone of the project will be on Holman Road NW between 7th Avenue NW and Greenwood Avenue N. During this phase drivers can expect:

  • Work hours: 7 AM – 5 PM
  • Traffic reduced to one lane in each direction on Holman Road NW
  • Occasional driveway closures
  • Parking and loading restrictions near work zones
  • Pedestrian and cyclist detours
  • Occasional intersection closures
  • Construction noise and dust
  • Temporary bus stop relocations or closures

Zone 2: The second zone of the project will be on Holman Road NW between NW 87th Street and 7th Avenue NW. This phase will include replacing bridge expansion joints, which will require full weekend night closures in both directions. During this phase, drivers can expect:

  • Work hours: 7 AM – 5 PM
  • Traffic reduced to one lane in each direction on Holman Road NW
  • One 24-hour closure in both directions of Holman Road between 7th and 9th  avenues NW for bridge deck repairs
  • Occasional driveway closures
  • Parking and loading restrictions near work zones
  • Pedestrian and cyclist detours
  • Occasional intersection closures
  • Daytime, nighttime, and weekend work activities
  • Construction noise and dust
  • Temporary bus stop relocations or closures

Safe Routes to School

As part of this work, temporary wheel stops will be installed to provide a safer passage for pedestrians and bicyclists along Mary Avenue NW and NW 92nd Street. This improvement will be in effect until a new sidewalk is built as part of a Safe Routes to School project in 2016.

Residents along Mary Avenue NW and NW 92nd Street can expect changes in parking on this route.

Funding for this project includes a Federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) preservation grant of $1.1 million and Bridging the Gap funding of $2.7 million.
