The repaving of Ravenna Boulevard NE between NE 65th and 15th Avenue NE, previously delayed due to rain has again been rescheduled, this time due to a problem in securing asphalt. The work which was to occur today and tomorrow, June 11 & 12, is now scheduled for Wednesday, June 13, and Thursday, June 14. This work is weather dependent — paving cannot be done in the rain.
A break in the rain last week permitted construction crews to complete the repaving directly in front of the I-5 on- and off-ramps. The contractor plans to complete the remaining repaving of the eastbound lanes from 8th Avenue NE to Cowen Place NE on Wednesday, June 13; and the westbound lanes from Cowen Place NE to NE 65th Street on Thursday, June 14. Crews will work from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days.
The project, which is repaving NE Ravenna Boulevard between Green Lake and 15th Avenue NE, remains on schedule and will be completed by the end of summer.
