UPDATE: Due to the weather forecast, SDOT has cancelled this weekend’s paving project.
Weather permitting, SDOT will be grinding and paving Garfield St between Nob Hill Ave N and 2nd Ave N this weekend, April 6th and 7th.
In advance of the paving, SDOT crews will repair the street surface (no time provided). The crew will be working on the paving project from 9am-6pm both Saturday and Sunday, during which times the street will be closed to traffic. Crosswalks and sidewalks will remain open.
Metro route 4 travels along this stretch of Garfield, so expect a detour. Re-route information is not yet available on Metro’s site.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has rescheduled road work to lay new asphalt along Dexter Ave N for this week, on Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11, weather permitting. From SDOT:
Traffic will be limited to one travel lane in each direction from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. On-street parking will be restricted. Drivers should expect additional traffic congestion and delays and are advised to consider using alternate routes. Uniformed police officers will be present to keep traffic moving at the intersection of Westlake Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N. Bicyclists will merge and share the lanes with vehicles on Dexter or they may use the sidewalks or alternate routes.
After repaving, SDOT will install new bus islands, a buffered bike lane, and new traffic markings and street channelization, as part of an ongoing effort to improve traffic congestion caused by car, bus and bicyclist overlaps along Dexter Ave N.
The repaving phase of the project is expected to be completed in early May. The entire project, which will extend from Fremont Avenue North to Roy Street, will be completed in September of this year. Read more about the project at the Dexter Paving website.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has canceled repaving work planned along Dexter Ave N on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week due to unfavorable weather conditions.
The road work would have decreased traffic down to one lane in each direction between the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and tomorrow, as well as limited on-street parking.
SDOT has not yet set a new time for the paving to take place, but we’ll keep you posted when those dates are scheduled. SDOT plans to complete the paving portion of the project by the beginning of May.
To read more about the Dexter repaving project, which will stretch from Fremont Ave N to Roy Street and will be completed in September of this year, check SDOT’s Dexter Paving project page.

Extra traffic is expected on Mercer St. this weekend. SDOT crews are going to be laying a thin layer of asphalt on Mercer between Fairview and Westlake avenues on Saturday, March 20, blocking off up to two lanes of traffic from 6 a.m. to no later than 4 p.m. At least two lanes will be open to traffic, along with the sidewalks.
According to SDOT, the thin layer of asphalt will serve as a “patch” on Mercer St–in desperate need of repaving to remedy the pothole problem–until the street can be rebuilt as part of the upcoming Mercer Corridor East project.
