Starting April 8: Northbound drivers detoured off 35th Ave NE between NE 75th and NE 95th Streets for several weeks.

We’re in construction to repave 35th Ave NE to improve safety, accessibility, and comfort for all users. Starting on Monday, April 8, crews will be grinding the top several inches of asphalt on 35th Ave NE between NE 75th and NE 89th streets to prepare for paving.

Here’s what you can expect:


Starting at 7 AM on Monday, April 8, we will be grinding the asphalt on 35th Ave NE. Work hours will be from 7 AM to 7 PM, Monday through Friday, but road closures and the northbound detour will be in place 24/7. We anticipate grinding to take several days.

Following that, crews will complete final repairs on the roadway, which may take several weeks. Paving will follow these activities and is weather dependent.
