6th Ave Paving Project

What's Happening Now

We have started to upgrade curb ramps in the project area to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act standards. We began upgrading curb ramps in November 2017 and plan to begin paving as early as April 2018.

Overview

Each year, we pave arterial streets in poor condition to make them safer, smoother, and to extend their useful life. Keeping our transportation system in a state of good repair helps lower the cost of future maintenance. While grinding and paving between Stewart St and Yesler Way will not begin until spring 2018, we have started upgrading curb ramps to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act standards. As part of this project, we will also install a new crossing beacon at Marion St.

We selected and prioritized this project based on pavement condition, traffic volumes, opportunities to improve the roadway's operations, and more.

We will:

  • Upgrade curb ramps and make minor sidewalk fixes at select locations on both sides of 6th Ave
  • Repair the underlying street base
  • Grind existing pavement and pave the street curb to curb
  • Install a new crossing beacon to improve safety for people crossing at Marion St
  • Replace traffic detection sensors
