Seattle Department of Transportation crews will repair a retaining wall on the east side of Fifth Avenue NE, just north of NE 103rd Street. They plan to begin work as early as March 22. The sidewalk and the curb lane on Fifth Avenue will be closed until the work is completed, expected to take a week or more.
The repair is needed because erosion of the bank has undermined the wall at this location along Thornton Creek.
