Final paving has just been completed on Dexter Avenue N between Fremont /Fourth Avenue N and McGraw Street. The contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation will work on bus islands during the next two weeks. Crews will also install new traffic markings, including street buffered bike lanes. This work is expected to be completed by the end of May.
A second phase of the project, from McGraw Street to Garfield Street, is scheduled to begin the week of May 23rd and to be completed by early August. Crews will start with installing an underground storm water detention pipe near Garfield Street and a bio-retention / “rain garden” near Crockett Street. Other work includes repaving the roadway, installing bus islands, adding a buffered bike lane, and making pedestrian improvements. During this second phase of the project, Garfield Street will be closed for seven days between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Drivers should expect lane closures and on-street parking restrictions.
Please note that some of the work is weather dependent and the schedule, scope and work times may change as the project moves forward.
