35th Ave NE Project: Construction Update (04/18/19)

Paving on 35th Ave NE between NE 75th and NE 89th streets has been postponed andis now scheduled to take place starting at 6 PM on Friday, April 26. Paving activities may continue as late as 5 pm on Saturday, April 27 based on site conditions. This work is weather-dependent and could change. 

Overview of upcoming work as of April 18, 2019

Zone C (between NE 75th and NE 89th streets):

Crews continued preparing for final paving this week and made great progress by finishing all panel repairs on 35th Ave NE. Next week, people will continue to see crews in the project area conducting maintenance and electrical work prior to paving. Traffic control and parking restrictions will remain in place for your safety and the safety of our crews.

What to expect prior to paving on April 26:

  • Typical work hours: Monday – Saturday 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Northbound detour: Northbound traffic will be detoured to Sand Point Way NE between NE 75th and NE 95th streets. 
    • 35th will be fully open between NE 65th and 75th streets. However, trucks and other drivers that are traveling through the area may use eastbound NE 65th St to Sand Point Way NE as a detour route.

Please follow detour signs for everyone’s safety. During previous detours, we’ve heard concerns from your neighbors about cut-through traffic on side streets. Please follow the posted detour route and if you must use side streets to reach your home, please drive slowly and watch out for one another.

  • Driveway access: Crews may need to partially block driveways to accommodate safe work zones near existing driveways 
    • If a full driveway closure is needed, we will notify businesses and residents in advance
  • Limited turns to/from side streets on 35th Ave NE between NE 75th and 89th streets: Side street access will be limited to establish a safe work area
  • Parking restrictions: Street parking will be closed 24/7 on both sides of 35th Ave NE between NE 73rd and NE 89th streets until construction is finished 
    • Please read the restrictions listed on the no parking signs for details to avoid being ticketed or towed
  • Temporary bus stop closures and reroutes: Get the latest information at King County Metro Alerts

  • All sidewalks will remain open. People walking will be able to cross 35th Ave NE at NE 75th St and NE 90th St
    • Please do not walk across 35th Ave NE during paving. Asphalt and tar are very hot and harmful to people and animals
