NE Northlake Way Sidewalk Project Begins

SDOT is advising travelers that work along NE Northlake Way is scheduled to begin as early as Monday, April 10. The impacts mentioned below are expected to continue through the end of May, as crews begin building new sidewalks on the north side of NE Northlake Way between 7th Ave NE and Eastlake Place NE, and on the south side of NE Northlake Way between 8th Ave NE and Eastlake Place NE.

Starting the week of April 10 through mid-May, travelers can expect:

  • Temporary vehicle lane restrictions between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Flaggers maintaining 2-way traffic along NE Northlake Way
  • Short-term/temporary parking and bike lane restrictions with 72-hour notice
  • Normal weekday work hours, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

This sidewalk is a high priority in SDOT’s pedestrian Master Plan and will connect NE Northlake Way with existing sidewalk on NE Pacific St and the sidewalk network near the University of Washington campus.
