Starting Sept. 7: High Friction Surface Treatments along 24th Ave E


As part of Vision Zero, our crews will be adding High Friction Surface Treatments (HFST) at 3 locations along 24th Ave E to improve skid-resistance to the pavement. During this time, you may see crews “power washing” pavement and/or removing striping to ensure that these treatments adhere correctly and to complete work safely and efficiently.


Here’s What You Can Expect: 



Work will begin as soon as Saturday, September 7. This work is anticipated to last for up to 2 weekends and is weather dependent.


Crews will generally work on weekends, Saturday and Sunday, 6 AM – 10 PM, with no noisy work occurring before 9 AM.


Work will take place in these 3 locations:

  • 24th Ave E/E Louisa St
  • 24th Ave E/E Lynn St
  • 24th Ave E/E Helen St/Turner Way
