Beginning in January, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will reconstruct 15th Avenue NE in the University District between NE Pacific Street and NE 50th Street, and will resurface 15th Avenue NE from NE 50th to NE 55th. The roadway needs to be reconstructed (rebuilt from curb to curb) to maintain an efficient and safe travel corridor for vehicles, pedestrians, and transit. Come to the upcoming open house to learn more about the project:
Date: December 8
Time: 4 – 7 p.m.
Place: University Heights Community Center, Room 209, 5031 University Ave NE
Puget Sound Energy (PSE) will relocate gas lines along 15th Avenue NE in December in preparation for the reconstruction project. The work will occur in the southbound travel lanes of 15th Ave NE between NE 40th Street and NE Pacific Street, and between NE 43rd Street and NE 42nd Street.
SDOT’s contractor plans to begin the first phase of reconstruction in January on 15th Ave NE from NE Pacific to NE 45th Street and plans complete this part of the project by summer.
