2010 Asphalt Arterial & Concrete Spot Rehabilitation

2010 Arterial Spot Rehabilitation Project – Cherry Street

Project Update – October 21, 2010

Substantially complete October 7th.  Project had 55 Work Days in contract - 50 Working Days expended.

Project Update – September 29, 2010
Cherry Street Paving – Re-scheduled

Due to inclement weather Cherry Street’s paving has been re-scheduled, for a third time, to Thursday night September 30.  Cherry Street will be closed to traffic between First and Second avenues and Second and Third avenues.  Uniformed police officers and flaggers will be on site to offer assistance and keep vehicles moving.  The overall project will be substantially complete in early October.

Construction Schedule:

  • Thursday, September 30 – Paving between First Avenue and Third Avenue will start between 11:00 p.m. and midnight and conclude by 6:00 a.m.
  • Week of October 4 – Following paving expect to see new channelization on Cherry Street between First and Fifth avenues. With low traffic volumes on this street the travel lanes will be widened and a bike lane will replace one of the general-purpose lanes between First and Fourth avenues on this one-way, uphill street.

Project Update – August 26, 2010

SDOT and its contractor will start construction on Cherry Street right after September 6, 2010.

Project Overview

As part of its 2010 Arterial Asphalt and Concrete (AAC) Program, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to repave a section of Cherry Street in Downtown Seattle.

The paving project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006. 

Project Location: 

Cherry Street – First Avenue to Third Avenue.

Project Description:

Construction work on Cherry Street will include grinding and removing the top layer of existing asphalt pavement, repairing the underlying pavement base in damaged areas, overlaying a new asphalt surface, and installing new lane markings. 

Project Schedule:

Construction is expected to last about two weeks and will occur sometime between mid-July and late September 2010.

Traffic Impacts:

During construction, at least one lane on Cherry Street will be open for traffic during daytime hours.  

The grinding and pavement overlay work will occur at night when Cherry Street, between First and Third avenues, may be closed to traffic.

There will be some temporary parking and loading restrictions.

What to Expect During Construction:

  • Lane closures
  • Pedestrian and vehicle detours
  • Parking and loading restrictions
  • Construction noise and dust
  • Instances of weekday, weekend and night work
  • Regular notices with specific information during construction
  • Some of this work is weather dependent, and the schedule may be adjusted as the project moves forward
