SR-99 Repaving project: Lane closures start Monday, July 9

Saturday afternoon under Aurora Ave Bridge.

Expect some lane closures on SR-99 as crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation start a repaving project.

Officials say the last time this stretch of road was repaved was in 1999.

Starting Monday, July 9, crews will begin repaving both directions of Aurora Avenue between Roy Street near the Seattle Center and North 145th Street.

Crews will be removing and replacing old asphalt and replacing about 50 curb ramps on the sidewalk.

Most of the work will take place overnight, but there will be some daytime lane closures. At least one lane will remain open in each direction throughout the project. The closure details are:

  • One lane at 7 p.m. and a second lane (in three-lane sections) at 8 p.m.
  • One lane weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during non-peak travel times
  • Weekdays, all lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. for the morning commute
  • Weekends, short sections of the right lane will close from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Sunday, and the adjacent lane nightly from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. for bus pad work.
