There will be a full closure of 35th Ave NE and NE 110th from Saturday, November 9 to Monday November 11. Crews will be addressing long-term drainage issues at the intersection. To minimize impact on neighboring schools, this will take place over Veterans Day weekend. Please see the attached pdf for further details on this project and detour information affecting the neighborhood roadway access.
This project is studying 4 bridges in the Matthews Beach neighborhood that have an average age of 65 years and are showing signs of deterioration. While still safe to use, each bridge is near the end of its useful life. The primary goal of this study is to identify feasible solutions that address long-term multimodal transportation demand.
At the drop-in sessions, you’ll be able to learn about the 4 bridges we’re studying, provide feedback, and engage with project staff.
Below are the details of each session:
Tuesday, August 20: 5:30 – 7 PM
Meadowbrook Community Center
10517 35th Ave NE
Wednesday, August 21: 8:30 – 10 AM
Saint Anne Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
3540 NE 110th St
These drop-in sessions are informal; we encourage you to come by when it’s convenient for you. If you can’t make one of these events, similar content will be posted to our project webpage as soon as August 22.
There are 4 bridges being studied during 2019. All the bridges cross Thornton Creek Channel:
Various experts have visited each bridge to study their current condition and to write a report detailing their findings. These experts examined many factors, including the structure of the bridges, the condition of the soil beneath them, the flow of the creek, and the potential environmental impacts of any work.
We will complete this study before the end of 2019 and share recommendations with the community in order to secure feedback from all interested parties.
The elements of this preliminary study will be ongoing throughout 2019. They will include public meetings. The schedule for these meetings will published here once determined.
This study has been funded through early planning. Funding for design and construction will be evaluated following a review by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee.

Overview of upcoming work as of May 7, 2019
Night work for final striping on 35th Ave NE begins tonight, Tuesday, May 7 and continues for the next several weeks
Due to the anticipated daytime temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s for the next several weeks, our contractor needs to install final striping on 35th Ave NE at night. Higher temperatures can cause new paint to take longer to cure and is harder to clean up if a vehicle drives through it. Crews will begin work between NE 47th and 75th streets. Once complete, crews will continue working at night between NE 75th and 91st streets.
We are working to minimize impacts wherever feasible and 35th will remain open with one lane in each direction during the work. Please read below for what to expect while striping takes place:
- Nighttime hours: 7 PM to 7 AM, Monday through Friday
- 1 lane of traffic in both directions will be maintained at all times: Uniformed police officers (UPOs) and flaggers will direct traffic around the work area
- Parking will be restricted along the corridor to maintain a safe work area
- Noise and vibrations during final striping installation at night are expected to be slightly louder than typical traffic but not as loud as nighttime paving.
- All sidewalks will remain open for people walking
If you have questions or concerns about the work, please contact our project information line, 206-512-3950, as soon as possible and we will do our best to minimize impacts whenever feasible.
Driveways will remain accessible, but you may experience intermittent delays while paint is drying:
Uniformed police officers (UPOs) and flaggers may re-direct you to avoid driving on fresh paint when trying to access a driveway. Fresh paint that has been driven on is difficult to clean up and harmful to vehicles.
If you have concerns about accessing your driveway during nighttime work, please park on side streets and walk to your residence or business.
You can find more background about this project on our webpage. Please forward this email to those you think will be interested or share this link to sign up to receive construction updates by email. If you have questions, please contact us at 35thAvePaving@seattle.gov or 206-512-3950.
