Overview of upcoming work as of April 5, 2019
Zone C (between NE 75th and NE 89th streets):
On Monday, April 8, crews plan to begin grinding the top several inches of asphalt to prepare for paving. This work is expected to take approximately 2-3 days to complete. Once crews finish grinding, we will use street sweepers to clean-up the work area. Then we will make any additional repairs to the street base and upgrade the remaining curb ramps at NE 75th St and NE 89th St.
During grinding and base repair work, you can expect the following:
- NEW: Northbound detour: We have received an updated plan from the contractor and wanted to share it with the community prior to work starting. On April 8, 35th Ave NE will be open to southbound traffic only between NE 75th and NE 95th streets. Northbound traffic will be detoured to Sand Point Way NE between NE 75th and NE 95th streets.
- Trucks and other drivers that are traveling through the area may also use eastbound NE 65th St to Sand Point Way NE as a detour route
- The detour provides space on 35th for crews to work safely . The detour route to Sand Point Way NE is necessary because of the limited number of arterial streets in this area. It is also one of the few routes that accommodates truck traffic.
- Temporary driveway closures for up to 1 hour as the grinding machine passes
