Eastbound detours on N/NW 85th Street will end Tuesday afternoon

Seattle Department of Transportation crews will reopen the eastbound lanes of N/NW 85th Street between 8th Avenue NW and Greenwood Avenue North on Tuesday afternoon, in time for the evening commute.
Crews still have some work to do on sidewalks, curb replacements and pavement markings, so there will continue to be intermittent temporary closures in places.
On Thursday and Friday, 9th and 12th avenues northwest at NW 85th Street will be closed for asphalt replacement, weather permitting.
Access to and from the north side of North 85th Street at Fremont Avenue North remains closed for installation of a stormwater detention pipe.
Access to and from North 85th Street at Phinney Avenue North will close for two days this week for pipe testing.
Construction really gets underway on Greenwood Avenue North this week, as crews will grind the roadway between North 73rd and North 80th streets, in preparation for paving. On-street parking on that stretch will be temporarily removed.
Remember that all businesses are open during construction, even if they’re a little hard to get to!
