A smooth ride through SODO

The repaving of 4th Avenue South from Airport Way S to Royal Brougham Way was completed last week.  Check out the photos below for some lovely shots of velvety asphalt and gleaming paint lines.

As we mentioned last week, the project used a new, energy-efficient form of asphalt mix, but that wasn’t the only thing noteworthy about it.  Crews were also able to complete the paving on the west side of the Royal Brougham intersection in just one night and wrapped up final striping, clean-up and restoration in time for the Torchlight Parade and weekend Mariners and Sounders games.

The 4th Ave S repaving is just one piece of work in Downtown that will improve streets and help keep traffic moving when major construction gets underway on the Alaskan Way Viaduct.  A smooth ride through SODO, brought to you by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy.
