A paving contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation plans to reduce Olive Way between Third and Boren avenues to one lane from Monday, March 15 to Wednesday, March 17, 24 hours a day. On-street parking and loading along Olive Way will be restricted near the work zone during nighttime hours. There will also be periodic cross street, alley and driveway interruptions, and possible side street lane closures.
The contractor will remove the existing asphalt pavement on Olive Way from Third to Sixth avenues and from Ninth to Terry avenues, working between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Once asphalt removal is complete, the contractor will make any needed repairs to the base of the street. Paving is scheduled to take place during the week of March 22. Shortly after paving, crews will apply new traffic markings.
This project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
