15th Avenue NE Reconstruction Project

September 1, 2010

New SDOT Project Coming to Your Neighborhood!

In 2011, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will reconstruct 15th Avenue NE between NE Pacific Street and NE 50th Street, and resurface the roadway between NE 50th Street and NE 55th Street. The 15th Avenue NE Reconstruction Project is anticipated to begin in January 2011 and is scheduled to be complete by October 2011.

The project will likely be conducted in three phases:

  • Phase 1 (January – June): NE Pacific Street to NE 45th Street
  • Phase 2 (June – September): NE 45th Street to NE 50th Street
  • Phase 3 (September – October): NE 50th Street to NE 55th Street

The project is currently in the final design stage and will be advertised for competitive bids from contractors in September 2010. A more detailed construction schedule will be available in late 2010. Improvements to 15th Avenue NE include upgrades to pedestrian mobility, sidewalk widening at bus zones, new electrical infrastructure for future transit improvements, and upgraded street lighting.
