STARTING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2: Buses merge with traffic on Aurora Ave N at N 100th St. 

PLEASE NOTE: Starting January 14, 2019, we will retire the On the Move blog channel and all traffic advisory blogs will be posted on the SDOT blog channel. 

We’re making progress on the North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway.

Heads up travelers, we’re making progress on the North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway and will be installing accessible curb ramps and sidewalk improvements. Starting as soon as next Wednesday, January 2, here’s what you can expect.

Construction area.

Construction area

Nearby at Greenwood Ave N and N 100th St, traffic on Greenwood Ave N will be shifted around the construction work zone as we install a pedestrian island and pedestrian signal on Greenwood Ave N, as well as new accessible curb ramps on the west side of the street. Regular weekday work hours will be 7 AM to 4 PM.

  • Temporary on-street parking restrictions, with “no park” signs placed in advance.
  • Typical construction equipment, materials, noise, dust, and activity in the work area.
  • It is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled. For the safety of everyone using the street, please follow posted detour signs and avoid residential streets unless you live there or have business in the area. It’s important to drive slowly and be aware of the work areas.

 

Closure

N 100th St at Greenwood Ave N (west side of intersection) will be temporarily closed to through traffic during this work and open for local access only. Traffic will return to normal in spring 2019 once improvements are complete.

  • Once complete, those driving will no longer be able to cross Greenwood Ave N at N 100th St (see map on project webpage).
  • Two-way traffic on Greenwood Ave N will be maintained with lane shifts around the work zone.
  • Bike lanes in the vicinity will be closed during construction, and people biking will be directed to merge with traffic.
  • People walking will be redirected around the work zone, with a flagger available to assist during work hours.

 

Buses and bus lanes

The northbound bus lane on Aurora Ave N near N 100th St will be closed during the weekday, off-peak hours. Buses will merge with traffic. N 100th St at Aurora Ave N (east side of intersection) will also be temporarily closed to through traffic during this work and reopen outside of work hours (Monday-Friday, 7 AM to 4 PM) when possible. Local access will be maintained via Stone Ave N.  Traffic will return to normal in spring 2019 once improvements are complete.

  • Bus stops will remain open but may be temporarily relocated. Please check King County Metro Alerts for more information.

 

About the North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway.

The North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway will connect the Crown Hill, Greenwood, Licton Springs, and Northgate neighborhoods with the planned Northgate Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge, which crosses I-5 and connects to the future Northgate Link light rail station, bringing people to popular destinations including parks, schools, business districts, other greenways, and transit hubs.
