We will be partially closing the intersection at 50th and Meridian Ave N to repair and repave the intersection.

 

This closure is part of the Green Lake and Wallingford Paving & Multi-Modal Improvements project. As part of this project, we are repaving and updating the design and major arterial streets in the Green Lake and Wallingford communities to create safer places for people walking, biking, taking transit, or driving.

 

Schedule

 

Work will take place from Friday, Nov 15 at 9 AM through Sunday, Nov 17 at 10 PM.

 

The work is weather dependent, so if there are delays due to rain, we’ll postpone the intersection work to the following weekend of Friday, November 22 through Sunday, November 24.

 

Lane closures

 

People driving can generally anticipate one lane to be open in each direction on N 50th St as crews work throughout the weekend. Periodically, they can expect one lane to be open with a flagger to rotate traffic in one direction at a time. People driving should expect delays as they drive through the area.

 

Detours/Reroutes

 

The intersection will be closed to all northbound and southbound traffic on Meridian Ave N during the schedules hours. Please follow the detour signs in the area to travel around the intersection during the closure. People will still be able to drive eastbound and westbound through the intersection on N 50th St.

 

Detours for people walking and biking

 

People walking and biking will be detoured one block north and south of the intersection. They should follow signs that direct them around the intersection during the closure.
