From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 31, travelers can expect the following:

  • 3rd Ave NW will be closed to through traffic between NW 104th St and NW 107th St for grinding and paving

This project is part of SDOT’s 2016 Arterial Major Maintenance (AMM) program. The AMM program maintains our busiest streets by making strategic small scale investments at key locations on city streets.
