Queen Anne drivers should plan for closures on 6th Avenue North between Raye Street and Halladay Street next week.
The two lanes will be closed every day Monday, April 2 through Friday, April 6 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Flaggers will be at both ends of the closure for local access.
During the daytime closure, crews will work on 6th Avenue North underneath the Aurora Avenue Bridge. They are building a skeletal system for the extra steel that will be attached to the existing girders.
The $5.7 million seismic retrofit project will allow the 80-year old bridge to better withstand earthquakes.
Most drivers use 6th Avenue north to get under Aurora Avenue North. Local detour signs will be in place and drivers will be able to get from one side of Aurora to the other.
