Weekend Street Closures: First Avenue NE and NE 100th Street
This weekend, Sound Transit's utility relocation contractor will pave the intersection of First Avenue NE and NE 100th Street. The intersection will be closed to through traffic from 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26 to 5 a.m. Monday, Feb. 29.
The work will occur during both 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, Northgate Mall and the Northgate Transit Center will be maintained.
- Northbound traffic: Turn east on NE 92nd Street 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 NE 92nd Street to First Avenue NE.
The project is necessary ahead of guideway construction planned between the Maple Leaf Portal and the future Northgate Station, which begins in 2016. Stay tuned for more details about Northgate Station construction plans in the coming months.
*Weather permitting the same closure will likely occur the following weekend, March 4-6 to pave First Avenue NE, south of NE 100th.
