Weekend Street Closures: First Avenue NE and NE 100th Street
This weekend, Sound Transit’s utility relocation contractor will be working in the intersection of First Avenue NE and NE 100th Street. The intersection will be closed to through traffic from 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22 – 7 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 24.
The work will occur during the day and nighttime hours. No high impact noise activities (such as jackhammering or saw-cutting) will take place after 10 p.m. Access to homes and businesses and the Northgate Transit Center will be maintained.
- Northbound traffic: Turn east on either NE 92nd or NE 95th streets to Fifth Avenue NE. Turn north on Fifth Avenue NE to NE 103rd Street. Turn west on NE 103rd Street to First Avenue NE.
- Southbound Traffic: Turn east on NE 103rd Street. Turn south on Fifth Avenue NE. Turn west on either NE 95th or NE 92nd streets to First Avenue NE
The project is necessary ahead of guideway construction planned between the Maple Leaf portal and the future Northgate Station which will begin in 2016. Stay tuned for more details about Northgate Station construction plans in the coming months.
