The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will begin this week to replace about a dozen broken concrete panels on NW 80th Street between 6th Avenue NW and 12th Avenue NW.
Work will begin between 6th Ave NW and 8th Ave NW, and then will move west between 10th Ave NW and 12th Ave NW. Replacing the concrete panels involves three main steps: first, crews will saw-cut the roadway panels to be removed, then demolish the existing roadway, and finally pour new concrete panels. Work will alternate on the north and south sides of the street, and should take a couple weeks to complete in total, depending on weather.
During this work, traffic will be reduced to one lane on NW 80th St with flaggers directing traffic during the day in alternating directions. During non-working hours, temporary stop signs will be in place, and cars will have to take turns. This is like to create traffic congestion, especially at peak commuting times.
This work is being completed as a part of the N/NW 85th St & Greenwood Ave N Paving Projects.
