Construction on 35th Ave NE to resume as early as April 8
With nicer weather on the horizon, crews plan to restart construction for the 35th Ave NE Project between NE 75th to NE 89th streets as early as April 8. As work ramps up, northbound traffic on 35th will be detoured to Sand Point Way NE between NE 65th and NE 95th streets for several weeks. One lane will be open on 35th for southbound traffic. Please read below for detailed information about upcoming work.  
Overview of upcoming work as of March 29, 2019
Zone C (between NE 75th and NE 89th streets):
Crews plan to complete the following construction activities: 
  • Grinding: Crews will remove the top several inches of asphalt on 35th Ave NE to prepare the roadway for final paving. This work should take approximately 4 days to complete. 
  • Clean-up after grinding: Grinding work is noisy and dusty. After grinding the road, crews will use street sweepers to clean up the work area.
  • Street repairs before paving: Once crews have completed grinding and cleaning, they will assess the street base and complete additional repairs, as needed. This work may take a week or more to complete.
  • Sidewalk and curb ramp upgrades: Crews will finish curb ramp work in 2 locations
  • Final paving and striping: Crews plan to repave the roadway in mid-April, making the roadway safer and smoother to travel on
When work restarts, you can expect the following: 
  • Northbound detour: Starting as early as April 8, 35th will be open to southbound traffic only between NE 65th and NE 95th streets. Northbound traffic will be detoured to Sand Point Way NE between NE 65th and NE 95th streets. You may also choose to use 25th Ave NE depending on your destination. 
    • The detour provides space on 35th for crews to work safely as we finish construction. 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.
Please follow detour signs for everyone’s safety. During previous detours, we’ve heard concerns from your neighbors about cut-through traffic on side streets. Please follow the posted detour route and if you must use side streets to reach your home, please drive slowly and watch out for one another.
  • Parking restrictions: Street parking will be closed on both sides of the street, 24/7, between NE 75th and NE 89th streets
    • No-parking signs will be placed as early as next week, 3-days in advance of work starting. Please read signs for details to avoid being ticketed or towed.
  • Limited turns to / from side streets and driveways on 35th Ave NE: Side street access and turns at some driveways will be limited to establish a safe work area
  • Temporary bus stop closures and reroutes: Get the latest information at King County Metro Alerts
  • Typical work hours: Weekdays from 7 AM – 7 PM

A new design for 35th Ave NE 
Earlier this week, we announced a new design that addresses many of the concerns we’ve heard from the community since planning began for the 35th Ave NE Project in 2016. Thanks to everyone who has continued to engage with us about the Project. We will be sharing more information with you in the coming weeks.
