Weather permitting, SDOT and its contractor will repave Dexter Avenue North between McGraw Street and Garfield Street on July 27 and 28.
Crews will start work at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27. Paving will begin at McGraw Street, on the west side of the street, and move south. Planned working hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Shortly after paving is complete, temporary traffic markings and striping will be applied.
During working hours one lane in each direction will be maintained. There may be times when traffic will be reduced to one lane for both directions with flaggers at either end. Parking and loading zone restrictions will be in place near the work zone and its approaches. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
Also on July 27, Dexter Way North between State Route 99 and Dexter Avenue North will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
