The North Surface Streets Project continues its street construction work this weekend at the intersection of Denny Way and Seventh Avenue. At 8 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 20, Wall Street will be closed at Denny Way. Southbound vehicles on Seventh Avenue North will have to turn right onto Denny Way. Denny Way will also be narrowed to one lane in each direction between Sixth Avenue North and Dexter Avenue North. These restrictions will end by Monday, Sept. 23 at 5 a.m.
During the closure crews will pour new concrete roadway on Wall Street as part of our project's rebuilding of the intersection. This is the second of four weekends of paving in this heavily travelled intersection:
- Sept. 13-16: Paving west side of Denny Way intersection [DONE]
- Sept. 20-23: Paving Wall Street at Denny Way
- Sept. 27-30: Paving east side of Denny Way intersection
- Oct. 4-7: Follow-on paving work
The rebuild of Seventh Avenue North reached a milestone this week when crews opened the brand-new sidewalk on the east side of the street between Harrison Street and Denny Way. Crews then closed the corresponding sidewalk on the street's west side. We are completing this work in phases to maintain routes for people driving, walking and biking in the area while conducting a total rebuild of three blocks of a major city arterial street.
When work is complete in mid-2020 this three-block stretch of Seventh Avenue North will feature two lanes in each direction, dedicated bus lanes and new intersections at Thomas and John streets. You can follow construction's progress by signing up for our weekly construction emails.
