Repaving and lane closures begin at North 105th Street

Seattle kicked off a $9 million street project today to resurface North 105th Street, whose eastern portion is known as Northgate Way North, starting in the Greenwood neighborhood and working from west to east.

Drivers can expect a full eastbound closure, and one lane closed westbound, during the initial five-month phase from Greenwood Avenue North to Aurora Avenue North.

The entire 1.3-mile corridor, reaching Corliss Avenue North near Interstate 5, is to be finished by August 2014.

The work is funded through city property taxes that voters approved in the 2006 Bridging the Gap levy, as well as a state grant and some unused money from the recent Spokane Street Viaduct widening.

The corridor, which is used by 27,000 vehicles a day, will be outfitted with sidewalks, improved drainage, and traffic-message signs, the city says.¬† The project’s homepage can be found here.

Motorists are urged to detour using North 130th Street or North 85th Street. (Seattle DOT map)
