  • Northbound travel will return to 23rd Ave from E Union St to E John St
  • 23rd Ave will be open to two-way traffic (northbound and southbound)
  • King County Metro is expected to resume northbound Route 48 service on 23rd Ave at the next service change on March 11; southbound Route 48 will continue service on 23rd Ave
  • Expect temporary lane shifts and intermittent construction activities on 23rd Ave between S Jackson St and E John St through spring as crews complete minor close-out activities; northbound and southbound travel on 23rd Ave will be maintained
