Dexter Avenue Paving Will Cause Delays Monday & Tuesday

April 21st, 2011 by master

Heads up from the Seattle Department of Transportation as they continue work on Dexter Avenue.

They plan to lay new asphalt on Dexter Avenue North between Fremont Avenue North and McGraw Street on Monday, April 25th and Tuesday, April 26th, assuming the weather is favorable.

Traffic will be limited to one travel lane in each direction from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. On-street parking will be restricted. Drivers should expect additional traffic congestion and delays and are advised to consider using alternate routes. Uniformed police officers will be present to keep traffic moving at the intersection of Westlake Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N. Bicyclists will merge and share the lanes with vehicles on Dexter or they may use the sidewalks or alternate routes.

Think ahead on your morning and afternoon commute.

This phase of the work is scheduled to be completed by early May and the entire project will be completed in September.

Asphalt Removal On Dexter Ave. Has Begun

April 12th, 2011 by master

SDOT let us know in February about the upcoming changes to Dexter Avenue intended to help ease congestion caused by car, bus and bicyclist overlaps as well as improve the pavement condition by repaving the street.

That work began Monday as SDOT’s contractor began grinding and removing the existing asphalt pavement on Dexter Avenue North between Fremont Avenue N and McGraw Street.

During the work, one travel lane in each direction will be open on Dexter. There will be parking and loading restrictions near the work zone as well as periodic cross-street and driveway interruptions.

Paving will commence in April. Drivers and bicyclists are urged to seek out alternative routes when possible. For more information on this project, visit the SDOT web site.
