15th Ave NE Reconstruction
The 15th Avenue NE corridor between NE Pacific Street and NE 55th Street is a major arterial in Seattle’s busy University District. It carries approximately 16,000 vehicles daily and provides access to major institutions such as the University of Washington and the UW Medical Center. It also runs parallel and adjacent to University Way NE, or “The Ave,” one of the city’s major neighborhood market centers.
This project rebuilt 15th Avenue NE between NE Pacific and NE 50th and resurfaced the roadway between NE 50th and NE 55th streets. It also made many improvements for pedestrians and transit users, including new curb ramps, curb bulbs, bus bulbs and shelters, and a new marked crosswalk at NE 41st Street.
In order to complete this project on time, the contractor worked on more than 25 weekends and frequently at night and in the early morning. All southbound traffic was detoured around the work zone during weekend construction activity.
S&A was retained to coordinate the construction communications with project-area stakeholders and the general public.
