Greenwood and 85th Street weekly paving update

April 30th, 2012 · No Comments

Downtown Greenwood is quite a mess to get around these days with all the roadwork on N/NW 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue North, but remember that all business are open. In some cases, plywood ramps have been placed over ripped up streets and sidewalks to allow access to businesses.

This week, Seattle Department of Transportation crews are doing asphalt paving on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The eastbound lane of N/NW 85th Street remains closed between 8th and Greenwood avenues; traffic is detoured to N/NW 80th Street.

Crews are also working on Greenwood Avenue North from North 85th to North 73rd streets. They’re constructing new curb ramps on corners, and stormwater improvements. On-street parking has been temporarily removed from corners. The sidewalks at the intersection of North 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue North are still being replaced.

The intersection of North 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue North will be closed this weekend and next weekend.

If you couldn’t attend either of SDOT’s two drop-in sessions last week, you can check out their website for information and fliers that were provided at the sessions.

Metro bus stops are detoured as well. Sign up for Metro rider alerts or call (206) 553-3000 for the information on route changes.
