Median Avenue North lane closure at Northgate begins tomorrow, Sept. 16

Northbound traffic on Meridian Avenue North at North Northgate Way (on the south side of the intersection) will be reduced to a single lane from Tuesday, Sept. 16 for approximately one month. The lane reduction is necessary for repaving Northgate Way between Meridian and Corliss avenues, to be completed mid-November.

Traffic on Meridian, as well as on Northgate Way, is frequently backed up as a result of the construction. Motorists in this area are encouraged to allow extra time to reach their destination and to consider taking an alternate route.

Improvements that are part of the North 105th/North Northgate Way Project include complete roadway repaving, new sidewalks and curb ramps, drainage improvements, street lighting and street trees from Greenwood Avenue North to Corliss Avenue North. SDOT is also upgrading traffic signals from Greenwood Avenue North to Lake City Way Northeast (and along Lake City Way to North 120th Street), as well as installing two new dynamic message signs to provide drivers with real time travel information. The entire project is scheduled for completion in mid-November.
