At the City of Seattle, we are continuing to follow guidance from federal, state, and local leaders and our public health partners regarding COVID-19.  State officials have determined that work on public works projects can continue during the Governor’s stay-at-home order provided that appropriate safety measures are in place. 

The Seattle Department of Transportation is continuing with essential transportation (public works) projects to the greatest extent practicable during these times. The health and safety of our workers and the public is our first priority. Our contractors have updated their Health and Safety Plans to incorporate best management practices with respect to COVID-19 throughout our construction work sites. If a situation arises where a contractor is unable to maintain these practices on a work site, or the Governor orders that work on public works projects must stop, the contractor shall temporarily suspend work until the work can be performed safely and legally.  

We will notify you if there are any changes to the project schedule or planned work. You can learn more about COVID-19 at www.kingcounty.gov/covid. Thank you.


Construction update
We have wrapped up concrete road paving on SW Alaska St! We anticipate opening SW Snoqualmie St in April. We anticipate completing grinding and final paving of SW Avalon Way between 35th Ave SW and Fauntleroy Way SW the week of April 6. When we pave, SW Avalon Way from 35th Ave SW to Fauntleroy Way SW will be closed to traffic from 7 PM to 7 AM. Work is weather dependent and subject to change

During grinding and nighttime paving the week of April 6, please expect:
  • Crews will grind the road down first to prepare the road for an even repaving. This may happen during typical day time work hours. Driveways will be temporarily impacted as equipment moves along the pavement
  • Paving will take place after grinding and at night. Work will cause vibrations and the smell of tar.
  • Paving work hours from 7 PM – 7 AM. Crews have a temporary noise variance to do night work.
  • Paving will take approximately one shift to complete.
  • Anticipate driveway access to be impacted for a minimum of 1 night. We will let property owners know which night to expect this work, when confirmed, and emergency access will always be maintained.
  • Fresh pavement is hot, oily, and extremely sticky. Please keep off new pavement if you are walking, especially with dogs, as the oil and pavement can harm their feet and be difficult to remove from fur.
  • Crews will open driveways as they are safe for people walking and driving 
As a reminder, for the safety of our crews and your fellow residents, please follow posted detour routes and do not disturb traffic control. We anticipate laying down final striping in April, weather depending.
What to expect this week and next week:
  • 35th Ave SW and SW Alaska St: We have restricted left turns onto SW Alaska St from northbound 35th Ave SW. We anticipate lifting this closure in the coming weeks. Next week we will be installing push buttons for pedestrian crossings, and working on ADA curb ramps at 35th Ave SW and SW Alaska St.
  • Zone F (SW Alaska St from 35th Ave SW to 36th Ave SW): Next week we anticipate working at the intersection of 36th Ave SW and SW Alaska St on curb ramps and sidewalks.
As we work on SW Alaska St, please follow King County Metro’s Rider Alerts to stay up to date on bus stop changes.

Please do not disturb traffic control. When you disrupt cones and signage, it endangers other drivers, travelers, and our crews. You can be held accountable if an accident occurs. 

What to expect in active work zones: 

  • Lots of construction activity including jackhammering, large trucks, machines, noise, dust, asphalt odors, and vibrations   
  • Traffic delays as construction vehicles enter or exit the work zone. For the safety of our crews, please drive carefully and watch your speed through the construction zone. 
  • Advanced notice for temporary closures of driveways
  • Uniformed police officers or flaggers will typically be onsite  
  • Typical work hours from 7 AM – 7 PM 
  • Sidewalk and crosswalk detours. Please follow posted detours for people walking when you see them.
