SDOT will begin the second phase of work on the Holman Rd NW Paving Project today. Work in this phase will take place in Zone Two of the project, on Holman Rd NW between NW 87th St and 7th Ave NW.
During this phase, SDOT crews will make several pedestrian safety improvements, including the construction of pedestrian refuges on Holman Rd NW at the intersections of 7th Ave NW and 13th Ave NW, and the enlargement of a current median at Holman Rd NW and 15th Ave NW.
Bus shelter improvements will also be made, and the Holman Rd Bridge will also be repaired and repaved.
Drivers can expect some lane closures and parking restrictions within the construction zone as phase two gets underway. Regular construction hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except during work on Holman Road Bridge.
The bridge work will require one full 24-hour closure of Holman Rd NW in both directions between 9th and 7th Aves. The bridge work is weather dependent and is currently scheduled to begin on Friday, May 30, at 8 p.m., and to be complete by Saturday, May 31, at 6 p.m.
During the full closure, crews will install a joint replacement and repave the bridge. Drivers will be detoured via NW 85th Street and 3rd Ave NW except freight drivers will use NW 85th Street and Greenwood Ave N.
Local bus access will maintained at 7th Ave NW for King County Metro’s Route 28 and RapidRide D Line. For information on bus service, look for Rider Alert notices at bus stops, visit Metro Online, or call (206) 553-3000.
During Phase two of the project, temporary wheel curbs will be installed on Mary Ave NW and NW 92nd St to help provide a safer route for pedestrians and bicyclists until a new sidewalk is installed in 2016 as part of the Safe Routes to School program. Residents along this route should expect temporary parking changes.
The Holman Rd NW Paving Project was divided into two phases to reduce impacts to the surrounding community. Work in the first phase took place on Holman Rd NW between 7th Ave NW and Greenwood Ave N and is near completion. Phase two is expected to be complete in September.
