SDOT will soon be repaving Roosevelt Way NE from NE 65th St to the south end of the University Bridge. Construction is expected to begin in February, and last six to eight months.

We’d like to invite you to join us at the Open House where we’ll share details about the various elements of the project, along with what to expect during construction. The SDOT project team will be available to respond to questions. SDOT would like to thank the public for its patience while this work is completed.

The meeting is on Monday, January 25, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Room 108 of the University Heights Community Center, located at 5031 University Way NE. A presentation, providing an overview of the project and construction plans, will be made at 6:15 p.m.

In addition to paving the roadway, the Roosevelt Way NE Paving & Safety Project will also:

  • Create in-lane transit stops and consolidate bus stops to improve transit speed and reliability
  • Install a permanent protected bike lane on the west side of Roosevelt Way NE between NE 65th St and the University Bridge to improve safety for people biking
  • Install curb bulbs and pedestrian islands to shorten crossing distances and improve accessibility and visibility
  • Replace substandard curb ramps to meet federal Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards
  • Replace buckled or cracked sidewalks to improve safety for people walking
