Greenwood intersection closed this weekend

If you’re heading east out of Ballard this weekend, you’ll want to take note: The Seattle Department of Transportation will close the intersection of Greenwood Avenue North and North 80th Street this weekend as part of a major repaving project of Greenwood Avenue North.

The intersection will close at 6 p.m. Friday and reopen at 5 a.m. Monday.

The intersection closures extend from N 79th St to N 81st St on Greenwood Ave N, and from Dayton Ave N to 1st Ave NW on N 80th Street. Drivers should follow signed detours via N 65th St, 3rd Ave NW and N 85th St.

What to expect during the intersection closure:

  • Crews will work 24-hours to complete the roadway removal and reconstruction
  • Work will be noisy at times; concrete breaking will end by 10 p.m. and start after 8 a.m. on weekends to limit noise impacts to nearby neighbors
  • Pedestrian access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times
  • Metro Route #5 riders can expect transit detours and stop closures; to sign up for transit alerts visit

Little monsters out trick-or-treating during the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Safe Trick or Treat from 12-3 on Saturday will need to pay extra attention near that intersection. SDOT will have extra staff on hand to help people safely navigate that intersection.
