With the advantage of this week’s dry weather, the contractor was able to complete the remaining pieces of work in order to open 35th Ave NE.  The road had been closed since June 1, 2014, for creek reconfiguration and bridge construction at NE 107th Street in the Meadowbrook neighborhood. As of this afternoon, 35th Ave NE is open to through traffic. Regular traffic flows, including Metro routes 64 and 65, will resume and the sidewalks are open to pedestrians.

Over the next few weeks, occasional lane closures are anticipated due to streetscape improvements as part of the project.  Finishing touches will be ongoing within the flood plain area adjacent to 35th Ave NE (as pictured above on the east side of the road.)  Seattle Public Utilities issued thanks to everyone for their continued patience as construction is completed.
