Linden Avenue N Reopens to Two-way Vehicle Traffic

Seattle Department of Transportation today announced that work on Linden Ave. N between N 130th St. and N 145th St. has progressed enough to allow two-way traffic again.  Below is the announcement.

Linden Avenue North today reopened to two-way vehicle traffic, awaiting final pavement overlay this spring.  Temporary striping is in place.  Please be aware of abrupt lane edges and raised utility castings and note that the cycle track is still closed between N 130th and N 141st. Final pavement overlay is scheduled to take place in March, when warmer weather is expected.

Aside from final pavement, work on the project is now complete between N 128th and N 130th and between N 143rd and N 145th streets. Crews recently finished most of the sidewalks, pedestrian railing, curbs and gutters and driveway paving.  Remaining elements set for the next couple of months include landscaping, signal changes at N 130th and N 145th streets, new sidewalk and artwork installation.  Seattle City Light is also working in the project area to relocate utilities and erect street lights.

The final pavement overlay is expected to take less than a week, during which southbound traffic will be detoured. Parking restrictions will be in place along the corridor as needed.

The Linden Avenue North Complete Street Project includes a new drainage system, added street lighting, curbs and gutters, sidewalks and curb ramps, the City’s first urban cycle track and an infrared pedestrian detection crossing near the Bitter lake Community Center.
