Rainy weather postpones paving on North 105th Street

Seattle Department of Transportation had planned to move its paving operations on North 105th Street to a new segment beginning next week, but that’s been postponed a week due to weather.

Eastbound drivers have been detoured off of 105th between Greenwood and Aurora avenues for several months. Beginning the week of Feb. 24, all those lanes will be reopened.

Workers will then close eastbound lanes between Aurora and Meridian avenues, and westbound traffic in that segment will be reduced to a single lane. This closure and lane reduction will remain in place until July.

Detours after the shift:
• General purpose traffic will be detoured either north on Aurora to North 115th Street or south on Aurora to North 85th Street.
• Truck traffic will be detoured north on Aurora to North 145th Street.
• General purpose traffic heading to North Seattle Community College, Northgate Shopping Center, or other destinations in the area may also detour south on Aurora to North 90th Street, then east to Wallingford Avenue North, then turn north on Wallingford to North 92nd Street, east on 92nd, and north again along College Way North/Meridian Avenue North.
