25th Ave NE connects the Ravenna and Roosevelt neighborhoods to many local retail establishments and services. It’s also a transit route with service connecting northeast Seattle to the U District, Link light rail, and downtown Seattle. We’re in construction to repave 25th Ave NE to improve safety, accessibility, and comfort for all users. Starting at 8PM tonight, April 23, we will begin paving the west side of 25th Ave NE. On the first night of paving, crews plan to pave the west side of 25th Ave NE from NE Montlake Blvd to NE 55th St. On the second night, crews plan to pave from NE 55th St to NE 65th St.
Here’s what you can expect:

25th Ave NE will be closed to northbound traffic during this work. People driving north with will be detoured from Montlake Blvd NE to 35th Ave NE. One lane of southbound traffic will be maintained during paving. During the day (before 8 PM), a single lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Please follow marked pedestrian detours.
From 8 PM to 7 AM each night of paving, residents and businesses will not have access to their driveways. Driveway access is restricted to allow crews space to pave and to let the pavement cure following paving. Please use driveways and side streets west of 25th Ave NE and walk to homes and businesses if you need to leave before 7 AM on the mornings of April 23 and April 24. Crews will open driveways as soon as the pavement has finished curing.
