SDOT advises travelers that 3rd Ave will be reduced to a single, northbound lane between Cedar and Broad streets on Friday, August 4, as part of the 3rd Ave Belltown Paving Project. This work is weather-dependent.
From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, August 4, travelers can expect the following:
- 3rd Ave will be reduced to a single, northbound lane between Cedar and Broad
- Southbound 3rd Ave traffic will be rerouted to 2nd Ave at Broad St, and return to 3rd Ave at Cedar St.
- Detour map available on the project website.
- Vine St will be closed to traffic between 2nd and 3rd avenues through mid-August. Clay St will also remain closed to through traffic between 3rd and 4th avenues during this time.
- Local vehicle traffic can access these side streets but cannot cross 3rd Ave.
- Pedestrian access will be maintained.
- Police officers or flaggers will assist with traffic flow when crews are working.
- Emergency vehicles will be able to access the work zone.
- The work is expected to create construction-related noise, dust, vibration, and concrete odor.
Additionally, the northbound bus stop at 3rd Ave and Cedar St will reopen on Monday, August 7; until then, the temporary stop will continue to be located 1 block south, between Vine and Wall streets. The southbound bus stop at 3rd Ave and Cedar St will continue to be relocated 1 block south, between Vine and Wall streets, through 4 a.m. on Sunday, October 1 while 3rd Ave is repaved between Vine and Broad streets.
