Holman Rd nighttime work set to begin next week

The nighttime work scheduled as part of the Holman Rd NW Paving Project will be starting next week. During the initial stages of grinding and paving work, the westbound lanes of Holman Rd NW between 7th Ave NW and Greenwood Ave N will close from Monday, June 9, at 8 p.m.

Traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes of Holman Rd NW, where one lane will remain open in each direction. The lane closures and traffic reconfiguration will remain in place until June 17, when paving is complete.

After the westbound lanes are completed, eastbound lanes of Holman Rd NW will then be closed for grinding and paving between 7th Ave NW and Greenwood Ave N, and traffic will be shifted to the westbound lanes, with one lane open in each direction. This paving is estimated to be complete by Friday, June 27.

The paving work will be weather dependent, and scheduled dates are subject to change. Residents are advised that grinding is noisy and is scheduled to take place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on the nights of June 9 and June 18.

Local bus access will be maintained for King County Metro’s Route 28 and RapidRide D Line. Click here to find out more information about bus service alerts.

Shelter Lounge to open second location in Greenlake


According to Seattle Greenlaker, popular Ballard spot Shelter Lounge (4910 Leary Way) is planning to open a second location in Greenlake.

The new establishment is set to open in the former Baskin Robbins location on Greenlake Dr.

Shelter Lounge co-owner Kevin Carlson described the design aesthetic of the new watering hole to Seattle Greenlaker. “The architecture is going to be very similar to the Ballard location with lots of wood and stone. There will be more fire elements and our walls will be able to open up to the lake creating an outdoor feel,” says Carlson.

According to the reports, the space will include an outdoor seating area where patrons can enjoy the up to 20 beers that will be on tap. Parents and kids will also be welcome on the premises until about 8 p.m.

Carlson and his team plan on opening the new location before the end of the year.
