Emergency retaining wall repair on Sand Point Way NE

UPDATE: FEB 02: this project has been delayed until Monday, February 8th

Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will begin emergency replacement of a retaining wall in the 8500 block of Sand Point Way NE starting Monday, February 8th.

The failing retaining wall requires replacement as soon as possible to prevent further risk to the roadway and to protect a nearby water main.

Sand Point Way NE will be closed to through traffic between NE 70th Street and NE 95th Street while repair work is underway. Local access will be maintained and the Burke Gilman Trail will not be affected.

Construction Schedule

The full closure is expected to last 3-4 weeks, and will likely be followed by another 3-4 weeks of closure for northbound traffic.

What to Expect During Construction

During the initial weeks of this emergency repair work, you should expect:

  • No traffic through the construction zone in the 8500 block of Sand Point Way NE; detour will be in place using NE 70th Street, 35th Avenue NE and NE 95th Street
  • No access for bicycles and pedestrians through the construction zone; travel along the Burke-Gilman Trail will not be affected
  • Large equipment with heavy loads operating in the roadway 5 to 7 days a week, typically for 9-12 hours per day
  • Temporary relocation of utilities, potential short term service disruptions
  • Significant excavation work, boring for new support piles and retaining wall construction
