Grand Opening Ceremony for 8th and 100th Intersection, Tuesday, June 17th

We’ve all been driving, cycling, walking through the new vastly improved intersection of 8th Ave NW, NW 100th St, and NW 100th Place since August last year. Come celebrate with our 36th District State Legislator, Gael Tarleton:

  • Where:  8th and 100th
  • When: Tuesday, June 17th, 5-6 PM

A great chance to see some of your neighbors, say hi to Gael.

The intersection was revised to eliminate the free right swing for traffic northbound on 8th onto 100th Place. The Walkable Crown Hill effort identified this intersection as the number 2 priority for attention by the City.  The revision was dovetailed with King County Metro’s startup of the D-Line Rapid Ride service, which made 7th Ave NW one-way Northbound at Holman Rd, so the buses could use 100th Place and 3rd to turnaround back to Holman Rd. The intersection is  much safer now, that all northbound traffic on 8th must come to a full stop before proceeding.

Night time work on Holman Rd, June 9th and 18th, 8PM to 7AM.

Be prepared for at least a couple of noisy nights on Holman as the contractors on the repave are going to be grinding down the concrete. This was received yesterday from Seattle Dept. of Transportation. More information on their website.

You are receiving this e-mail as a subscriber to the Holman Road NW Paving Project updates. Crews finished repairing and paving the bridge this past weekend, and sidewalk work in Zone 1 (between 7th Avenue NW and Greenwood Avenue N) is nearly complete. Preparations are now underway for grinding and repaving all lanes of Holman Road NW in Zone 1.

 The westbound lanes of Holman Road NW between 7th Avenue NW and Greenwood Ave N will be closed at 8 PM on Monday, June 9, with grinding scheduled for that night. Grinding will be noisy and is expected to last until 5 AM the next day. Paving work will follow and is expected to be complete on June 17. During this time, traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes of Holman Road NW, with one lane open in each direction.

 Grinding and paving work will then switch to the eastbound lanes of Holman Road NW, and traffic will be shifted to the westbound lanes of Holman Road NW, where one lane will be open in each direction. Crews are scheduled to begin grinding the eastbound lanes the night of June 18, and paving is expected to be complete by June 27.

NW 85th Street Repairs to Start August 2nd

Work crews from Seattle Dept of Transportation will begin repaving and making other repairs to the road surface on NW 85th St between 27th Ave NW and 31st Ave NW.  Though not directly in Crown Hill, 85th is frequently used to get to Golden Gardens, Sunset Hill and the Locks.

Paving crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation plan to start tomorrow, August 2, repairing the concrete roadway at several locations on NW 85th Street between 27th Avenue NW and 31st Avenue NW. The crews expect to complete the work by Thursday, August 11 if weather allows. Eastbound and westbound traffic will take turns sharing a single lane in this area from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the assistance of traffic flaggers. No on-street parking will be allowed and the eastbound bike lane will be closed.  The sidewalks will remain open. Drivers are advised to take an alternate route or allow extra time to move through the construction area.

Holman Road Pavement Repair Next Week

Seattle Department of Transportation paving crews will work on Holman Road NW between Mary Avenue NW and 9th Avenue NW on Wednesday and Thursday, April 13 and 14, if weather is favorable.

N/NW 85th St repaving project Oct 2011 to Fall 2012

One of Crown Hill’s major streets is scheduled for repaving. Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will be repaving 85th Street from I5 to 15th Ave NW. This project has the potential to disrupt all modes of transportation on 85th and divert traffic to 80th and Holman Road as it avoids 85th. SDOT’s project information page currently lists the following:

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to repave N/NW 85th Street beginning in October 2011 and continuing thorough fall 2012.

This paving project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.

Project Location:

N/NW 85th Street – 15th Avenue NW to Interstate 5

Project Description:

This project will replace and rehabilitate the existing pavement along the N/NW 85th Street corridor from 15th Avenue NW to I-5 Freeway. Benefits include:

  • New concrete pavement in the most heavily travelled areas
  • New underground drainage infrastructure
  • Bus stop improvements including new shelters in some locations
  • Sidewalk repair and replacement
  • Green storm water facilities
  • New and upgraded curb ramps to meet current accessibility standards

Project Schedule:

The project will be phased so that all work will not occur simultaneously and to better manage traffic and disruptions. More detailed schedule information will be provided prior to the start of construction.
