SDOT continues rebuilding 15th Avenue NE in the University District. On the weekends the southbound lanes on 15th between NE Pacific and NE 45th streets are closed and are detoured to Brooklyn Ave NE. One northbound lane remains open and there are turning restrictions on side streets. This weekend (January 29-30), NE 41th and NE 42st streets will be closed to through traffic between University Way NE & 15th Ave NE.
The $11 million project includes pedestrian and transit improvements such as larger bus waiting areas, a new marked crosswalk at NE 41st Street, and upgraded pedestrian lighting. SDOT will also install a new northbound left turn lane at NE 42nd St to better serve traffic needs.
SDOT’s contractor expects to complete work between NE Pacific and NE 45th Street by June and the entire project to NE 55th Street by October.
