(This work has been postponed due to unfavorable weather forecast, and is tentatively rescheduled for April 9 and 11.)
Final paving on Linden Avenue North, between N 130th and N 141st streets, is scheduled for March 27 and 28, weather permitting. During the paving work, southbound traffic will be detoured via North 143rd Street to Aurora or Greenwood avenues.
This paving work is a milestone in a project that has approximately three more months of construction.
Crews will work from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day to place the top layer of asphalt from North 130th to North 141st streets.
Remaining project work includes roadway striping, signal changes at North 130th and North 145th streets, more new sidewalk and also an artwork installation. Seattle City Light also has work in the area to relocate utilities and install street lights. The project calls for a total of 57 new or upgraded street lights along the corridor.
Construction began in June of 2012 and is now complete between North 128th and North 130th streets and between North 143th and North 145th streets. The entire project is on schedule to wrap up by the end of the second quarter.
