Things we’ve heard from the community
Each week, we’ll plan to address a few common questions we’ve heard from your neighbors.

Where is work in Zone C starting?
Work in Zone C has started on the north side of SW Avalon Way between SW Genesee St and 35th Ave SW. Paving is anticipated to take place on the north side of SW Avalon Way as early as the week of August 19.

When are the intersection closures happening?
Intersection closures are anticipated to begin as soon as early September. We will update you through our email updates, post a detour map and work with local businesses to help maintain access during each weekend.

Will our trash still be picked up when construction is in our area?
We are coordinating with Seattle Public Utilities on trash collection so that your trash continues to be picked up when construction is in your area.

As noted earlier today, some additional street parking has opened back up on the west side of Avalon in the Luna Park business area.
