Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is reconstructing a section of 10th Avenue East in the North Broadway/Capitol Hill neighborhood as part of its annual paving program.
This weekend (July 31 to Aug 1) SDOT’s contractor will reconstruct a concrete lane on the west side of 10th Ave E between the State Route 520 overpass and a location south of E Miller St.
Crews will start at 7 a.m. on Saturday, and by 8 a.m. expect to begin breaking and removing the existing pavement. The contractor will have traffic control measures in place by 7 a.m. on Saturday and expects to reopen lanes by noon on Sunday, and possibly earlier on Sunday, depending on work progress.
To accommodate the work, 10th Avenue East from East Boston Street to East Roanoke Street will be closed to northbound traffic, and one southbound lane will remain open. A substantial detour will be in place: northbound traffic will be detoured from Broadway to East Roy Street, then to Belmont Avenue East, Lakeview Boulevard East, to Boylston Avenue East, and to East Roanoke Street.
Westbound traffic on East Miller Street will turn left (south) at 10th Ave E. East Miller Street will be closed to eastbound traffic between 10th Avenue East and Broadway Avenue East.
Bicyclists may use the sidewalk on the east side of 10th Ave E. Pedestrian access to all businesses and residences will be maintained. Local vehicle access will be maintained. Police officers will be on site to keep traffic moving.
The contractor expects additional weekend work during this project. For more information please visit the Spot Rehabilitation web site at:
