AVALON/35th PROJECT: What’s next – holiday weekend and beyond

With the long holiday weekend about to begin, SDOT has just sent its weekly update on what’s next for the Avalon/35th repaving-and-more project:

Over the holiday weekend, the following side streets will remain closed:

SW Charlestown St at SW Avalon Way
SW Snoqualmie St at 35th Ave SW
Work resumes the week of July 8 with continued work on:

SW Avalon Way with
-base repairs between SW Charlestown St and SW Andover St
-tentative paving between south of SW Charlestown St and south of SW Andover St on July 12

Our second water shutdown will take place the evening of Monday, July 8, from 9 PM to 6 AM. The same area that experienced the first shut down, will experience this shut down. If you are impacted by this shutdown, SPU will notify you with a flyer or door hanger. If you have questions about, or experience problems with, your water service, contact SPU’s 24/7 Operations Response Center at 206-386-1800.

    I just read that the work isn’t expected to be finished until 2020.  Makes me shed a tear for my commute.

    What’s the work schedule on this project, 4 hours a day?  Every time I go through this area on the C Line there is no one working.

      I see a crew out there all the time during normal business hours.   Granted in the evenings / night time and on the 4th they don’t work

    When will it be possible to turn left off Avalon to Admiral again? That’s impacting ability to quickly go up to Admiral junction.

    This project is absolutely painful for local residents. Getting to Avalon, we must travel through an alley not made for major traffic; you can’t turn left off Manning onto Avalon ( although a very brave and smart person moved the cones so locals could turn left onto Avalon from Manning (if you don’t know where Manning is then you probably don’t need to, but the local residents know). It’s hell and if one can’t turn left onto Avalon from Manning it makes it even more difficult for residents.  It is however good that residents can turn left off Manning onto Admiral. So there’s that. Can’t wait until this is complete. Totally painful for the residents, not to mention traffic that passes through there to get to the Alaska Junction. The street festival this weekend could make it a real problem. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
