Seattle Department of Transportation continues the nearly year-long paving project of N/NW 85th Street from Ballard to I-5. This week, crews will be replacing concrete roadways panels from 15th to 8th Avenue NW, replacing curbs and sidewalks, and installing storm drain pipes.
Here’s the latest from SDOT:

Phase 1 – 15th Ave NW to 8th Ave NW

  • Demolition, excavation and replacement of concrete roadway panels throughout the project area (north and south sides of the street).

  • Installation of storm drain pipes and inlets on NW 85th St at 13th Ave NW, 11th Ave NW and 9th Ave NW.

Access to/from NW 85th St at Mary Ave NW (north side) and 13th Ave NW (south side) will be closed. Side-streets can be closed for up to 30 days; closure days are not required to be consecutive.

Phase 2 – 8th Ave NW to Greenwood Ave. N.

  • Begin roadway demolition and excavation on the south side of NW 85th St between 8th Ave NW and 3rd Ave NW.

Residents and businesses will be notified in advance of impacts to driveways.
