Seattle Department of Transportation paving crews started work on Third Avenue NW between NW 92nd to NW 97th streets today. They had originally planned to work only from NW 95th to NW 97th streets. The work is expected to continue through tomorrow.
One lane for each direction of traffic will remain open on Third Avenue. On-street parking will be restricted. Traffic flaggers may assist traffic to and from side streets.
Today the crew will grind the old asphalt from the street surface, and tomorrow, if weather is favorable, they will lay new asphalt.
This work is a part of SDOT’s annual arterial street maintenance program.
