Construction on Lake City Way NE and NE 145th Street starts June 12

A contractor working for the Seattle Department of Transportation will begin improvements at the intersection of Lake City Way Northeast and Northeast 145th Street on Friday, June 12. This project, intended to improve safety for all travelers, includes new curb ramps (southeast and southwest corners), roadway pavement panels, storm drainage improvements and an upgraded traffic signal.

Residents and drivers should expect weekend and night work starting this Friday June 12th, at 6 p.m. through Sunday, June 14th, at 6 p.m.  This weekend work will be around the clock, to reduce impacts on the traveling public. Traffic lanes at the intersection of Lake City Way Northeast and Northeast 145th Street will be shifted and reduced, as crews complete roadway restoration and storm drainage installation.  During this time, pedestrian detours will be in place and police officers will be present to help keep traffic flowing.

Over the summer, contractors will remove and replace the existing curb ramps, upgrade signal poles and conduct electrical work. During construction, the contractor will reduce lanes, relocate the bus stop and detour pedestrians on an as-needed basis.

The crews will typically work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. with possible work on weekends. SDOT expects the project to be completed in mid-August, weather permitting.
