Major paving project on NW 85th starts next week

The Seattle Department of Transportation has just told us that the year-long project to repave 85th Street from 15th Avenue NW to I-5 – plus repave Greenwood Avenue North from North 85th to North 73rd streets – will begin the week of Oct. 17.

SDOT is still waiting to hear from its contractor on the exact day of that week that they will start.

SDOT crews will begin at 15th Avenue NW and work their way east in five phases. They’ll also start right away on rebuilding the intersection of North 80th Street and Greenwood Avenue North.

Stay tuned to MyBallard throughout the year-long project, as we’ll provide regular updates on SDOT’s construction schedule, road and driveway closures, detours, etc.
