Pavement repairs are coming to 24th Avenue Northwest as well as Shilshole Avenue Northwest during the next two weeks, weather permitting.
Paving crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation plan to work on a small stretch of 24th Avenue Northwest between Shilshole Avenue Northwest and Northwest Market Street on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28 and 29. Northbound lanes on 24th will remain open but southbound traffic on 24th will be detoured to Market Street from which motorists can select one of several alternate routes to reach Shilshole. The crosswalk on 24th Avenue on the south side of Market Street will be closed, and pedestrians will instead use the crosswalk on the north side of Market Street. Bicyclists northbound on Shilshole will be able to use the sidewalk to reach Market Street.
SDOT crews plan to work on Shilshole Avenue Northwest between 17th Avenue Northwest and Northwest Market Street and from April 30 to May 6. On-street parking on the south side of Shilshole will be restricted while the crews replace the road edge. The street will remain open to traffic, but flaggers and Police Officers will assist southbound traffic, pedestrians and bicyclists through the work area.
Work hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Motorists and bicyclists are advised to expect delays or use alternate routes.
