SDOT is advising travelers of work to install a new traffic signal on Westlake Avenue N at 8th Avenue N. As part of this work, the construction team will intermittently restrict one travel lane at a time in either the northbound or southbound direction on Westlake Ave N at 8th Ave N.
The work is scheduled to start as early as Monday, May 23, and continue the week of May 30, during weekdays. To avoid significant traffic backups, the intermittent lane closure will occur during off-peak hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. Work will not occur on weekends.
This work is part of the SDOT’s Westlake Cycle Track project to create a safer and more predictable corridor for people walking, biking, and driving. For more information, visit http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/wct.htm.
