The Seattle Department of Transportation announced recently that the planned start of construction of the Linden Ave. N Complete Streets project has been delayed three months. Below is the text of the announcement.
Construction of the Linden Avenue North Complete Street redevelopment project is delayed until late May or early June, 2012. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) previously planned to begin work in April, but encountered difficulties during the bidding
phase of the project. SDOT is re-starting the bidding process and anticipates construction will begin by early June.
The Linden Avenue North Complete Street Project will redevelop Linden Avenue North between North 128th and North 145th Streets. Improvements include:
- Re-paving and widening the roadway
- Building continuous sidewalks, ramps and curbs
- Creating buffered bike lanes to separate bicycle traffic from motorists and pedestrians
- Adding a pedestrian crossing near the Community Center
What’s happening now?
You may have noticed construction on Linden Avenue North is underway. Seattle City Light is working to relocate street light and power poles, and place new utility vaults in order to prepare for the next phase of redevelopment.
We will be sending regular email updates to keep the community informed throughout construction. For more information, please visit http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/linden.htm. Help us spread the word! Please share this information with your neighbors and friends.
