Construction updates: Linden Avenue North undergoes redevelopment; UW Pedestrian/Bike Bridge construction

Linden Avenue North six-month closure between N 130th & N 135th streets

Starting Wednesday, Sept. 5, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) contractor crews will be closing Linden Avenue N to southbound traffic as they redevelop Linden Avenue North into a neighborhood-friendly roadway. 

      - What's happening now?
Linden Avenue N will be closed to southbound traffic between N 130th and N 135th streets starting for approximately six months. This closure extends the southbound closure currently in place from N 135th to N 145th streets. Crews will install a new storm drainage system and construct new roadway, curbs, gutters and sidewalks.

     - Linden Avenue N between N 128th and N 130th streets remains closed to all traffic
Crews continue installation of the storm drainage system in the center roadway, construction of sidewalks and grinding, paving and landscaping. The closure will continue until late September/early October, followed by one lane of northbound travel through mid-November to complete sidewalks and landscaping.

     - Construction, southbound detours continue between N 135th and N 145th streets
SDOT crews will continue working at the north end of the project area, between N 135th and N 145th streets, to complete paving, construction of sidewalks, curbs and bioswales. Southbound traffic will remain detoured.

The stretch of roadway between N 135th and N 141th streets will reopen to southbound traffic when crews are not working in the area.
