Representatives from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) attended our March Board of Trustees meeting to give an update on the 2018 Paving Project in Northeast Seattle. The paving project includes a number of changes to 35th Ave NE between NE 45th Street and NE 87th Street.
Weather permitting, driveway and sidewalk construction will begin as soon as tomorrow, March 9. Crews have been pouring curb and gutter on NE 83rd St and 28th Ave NE and will transition to pouring concrete for driveways and sidewalk. This work is very weather-dependent, so may be rescheduled if necessary, and appreciate your patience.
Construction is moving slower than anticipated on the NE 95th St Sidewalk Project, due in part to a few weather delays. The latest project update from the Seattle Department of Transportation notes that work should wrap up in late March or early April, while an on-site project sign says that work will be complete in May.
A Neighborhood Transportation Forum will take place on Tuesday evening, February 28th, to introduce the NE 65th Street Vision Zero Project and discuss ideas for improving safety.
With sidewalks under construction on two streets in Wedgwood, plan ahead to avoid the work zones on NE 95th Street and on NE 83rd Street near Wedgwood School.
Wedgwood has two sidewalk construction projects in process: one on NE 95th Street and another on NE 83rd Street near Wedgwood School. Initial preparation work this week includes utility work, including relocation of the water meters of each house along the route.
Along with two sidewalk projects, some water meter work is going on in Wedgwood.
On Wednesday, January 25, 2017 there will be a public meeting about the Sand Point Way Corridor Study being done by the Seattle Department of Transportation. The meeting will be at 7 PM in the Officers Club of Building 30 at Magnuson Park.
The Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board is accepting applications for several new members to help make walking in Seattle safer and easier. Applications are due by Friday, January 27, 2017.
