Road work on 85th & Greenwood today

The intersection of 85th and Greenwood is a mess today as Seattle Department of Transportation crews fix the road where the water main broke two weeks ago.

Westbound 85th Street traffic can’t cross Greenwood Avenue at all, so you’ll have to turn right or left on Greenwood. There’s only one lane of eastbound 85th Street traffic from Palatine Avenue to Greenwood Avenue. North-south Greenwood Avenue traffic is fine, although, obviously, you can’t turn westbound onto 85th. Officers are directing traffic around the area.
Crews are digging up the surrounding crumbling street so they can lay new asphalt.

Here they’re using a mighty big wetsaw to cut out the panel.
