Short section of 17th Ave NE to be repaved on Friday

This in from SDOT: 17th Ave NE in U District will be closed to northbound traffic on July 13.

A portion of 17th Avenue NE between NE 45th Street and NE 47th Street (aka tree-lined Greek row across from the UW campus) will be resurfaced with asphalt on July 13, weather permitting. The street will be closed to all northbound vehicle and bicycle traffic, with a detour provided. The crews plan to work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This work is part of the Seattle Department of Transportation’s annual paving program, funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters.
