The stretch of 15th Ave NW between NW 85th St and NW 87th St is getting a new layer of asphalt, which is causing some traffic tie-ups.
Paving crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) are diverting traffic and closing lanes in order to do complete the project.
SDOT says two lanes will be open in each direction until 9 a.m., after which time one lane will remain open in each direction until 3 p.m. Sidewalks will remain open. The SDOT crews will be grinding the surface Monday and Tuesday, followed by paving on Wednesday and Thursday, weather permitting. (Thanks Catherine for the photo!)
