UPDATE: No paving or lane closure on 10th Avenue E. this weekend

UPDATE: This post has been changed since it was first published. No lanes will be paved or closed this weekend.

This just in from SDOT: The contractor’s plans on this have changed. They won’t be paving this weekend but will be doing work on underground utlities on 10th between Roanoke and Miller. Two lanes will be open. No traffic will be detoured.



Weekend paving on a portion of 10th Avenue E. will bring some detour traffic from Capitol Hill down onto Boylston Avenue E. and make travel from Capitol Hill to Eastlake more complicated.

During the work, 10th Avenue E. will be closed northbound between a location just south of E. Miller to E. Roanoke.

Crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will close a lane on the west side of 10th Avenue E. at 7 a.m. Saturday and begin digging up pavement about 8 a.m. They hope to reopen the lanes by noon on Sunday, if not sooner.

During the closure, northbound traffic will detour from Broadway to E. Roy, then to Belmont E., Lakeview Boulevard E. to Boylston and then to Roanoke.
