Linden Avenue North today reopened to two-way vehicle traffic, awaiting final pavement overlay this spring. Temporary striping is in place. Please be aware of abrupt lane edges and raised utility castings and note that the cycle track is still closed between North 130th Street and North 141st Street. Final pavement overlay is scheduled to take place in March, when warmer weather is expected.
Aside from final pavement, work on the project is now complete between North 128th and North 130th streets and between North 143rd and North 145th streets. Crews recently finished most of the sidewalks, pedestrian railing, curbs and gutters and driveway paving. Remaining elements set for the next couple of months include landscaping, signal changes at North 130th and North 145th streets, new sidewalk and artwork installation. Seattle City Light is also working in the project area to relocate utilities and erect street lights.
The final pavement overlay is expected to take less than a week, during which southbound traffic will be detoured. Parking restrictions will be in place along the corridor as needed.
The Linden Avenue North Complete Street Project includes a new drainage system, added street lighting, curbs and gutters, sidewalks and curb ramps, the City’s first urban cycle track and an infrared pedestrian detection crossing near the Bitter lake Community Center.
