On Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, the Seattle Department of Transportation will pave Fifth Avenue S from Dearborn to Weller streets – just off of Airport Way by the Uwajimaya complex. Weather permitting, the work will involve grinding down the street surface, making repairs to the base and then laying down new pavement. One lane of Fifth Avenue will be kept open in each direction for vehicle traffic and the sidewalks will also remain open for pedestrians. Motorists will likely encounter slow moving traffic through the work zone and may want to take an alternate route.
