ROAD WORK: Roxbury paving plan; 35th/Avalon wrapup

Two road-work notes tonight:

TWO BLOCKS OF ROXBURY PAVING: From this week’s West Seattle Bridge-related update in City Councilmember Lisa Herbold‘s weekly newsletter:

SDOT is planning to repave the westbound lanes of Roxbury between 16th and 18th Ave SW as early as mid-May, depending on weather. SDOT indicates they are coordinating with King County, which has jurisdiction over the eastbound lanes. SDOT will be doing outreach in advance.

We’ll be following up on Monday.

35TH/AVALON WRAPUP: From SDOT this afternoon:

• We will begin work to make safety improvements to the northbound bus stop at SW Genesee St as soon as May 11. Please expect:

o No parking signs and traffic control in the work area
o Loud noise and increased truck traffic
o Bike lane shifts as we work at the bus stop
o A temporary closure of the nearby sidewalk with a posted detour route
o A temporary closure of this bus stop

• Next, we will continue installing pavement markings on 35th Ave SW and SW Avalon Way as well as install flex posts for the protected bike lane and complete miscellaneous minor activities
o Please follow any posted no-parking signs on SW Avalon Way

We will take down our no-parking signs where and when they are no longer needed.

    Well, paving one side of the street for two blocks is better than nothing..  Looking forward to the other 9 blocks and the other side of the street getting paved as well. Also, I thought SDoT agreed to maintain the whole of Roxbury, no just the Seattle side. Did I misunderstand the arrangement?

    Looks like they might finish a few weeks early?

    Debris from the repainted bike lanes on Avalon northbound seem to get pitched up on wetter days into your bikes drivetrain creating a crackling/creaking sound. I ride this daily and have now noticed it on multiple bikes (new with clean drivetrains – eliminating speculation of a maintenance issue) specifically in the wet. The noise does settle after a bit and the debris falls away. A good DT clean helps too. But this is very annoying… and concerning.

Sorry, comment time is over.
