Detours on eastbound Holman Road/105th Street for next 4 months

July 18th, 2013 · Comments

Get ready for some major traffic disruption at Holman Road/105th Street in Greenwood as Seattle Department of Transportation begins making major improvements from Greenwood Avenue North to Lake City Way NE. The work begins next Thursday, July 26 Monday, July 22 and lasts through November. (Update: SDOT has rescheduled the start of this project until after the Greenwood Seafair Parade on Wednesday.)

Phase I of the project consists of installing storm drains and reconstructing the roadway on North 105th Street between Holman Road Northwest and Aurora Avenue North. For this work, the contractor working for SDOT will detour eastbound traffic on Holman Road Northwest and North 105th Street at Greenwood Avenue North beginning Monday morning, July 22 and continuing until November.
Two signed detours will be established for eastbound traffic:

Option 1
• South on Greenwood Avenue North
• East on North 85th Street
• North on Aurora Avenue North
• East on North Northgate Way

Option 2
• North on Greenwood Avenue North
• East on North 130th Street
• South on Aurora Avenue North
• East on North Northgate Way

Large trucks eastbound on Holman Road Northwest will be detoured at Greenwood Avenue North, north to North 145th Street, then east on North 145th Street, or south on Greenwood Avenue North and east on North 85th Street. (See attached map.)

At least one lane of westbound traffic on North 105th Street will remain open at all times. Access to businesses will be maintained. While sidewalks are being constructed, pedestrians will have access on at least one side of North 105th Street.
In addition, transit will be re-routed, and bus stops may be closed or re-located. For information on bus service, look for Rider Alert notices at bus stops, see Metro Online,www.kingcounty.gov/metro, or call (206) 553-3000.

At the completion of Phase I, the construction activity will move east to the Phase II section of North Northgate Way between Aurora Avenue North and Corliss Avenue North.

This project will improve the corridor along North 105th Street and North/Northeast Northgate Way from Greenwood Avenue North to Lake City Way Northeast. Improvements will include roadway repaving, new sidewalks and curb ramps, drainage improvements, street lighting and traffic signals, and Intelligent Transportation System components. When it is completed in the summer 2014, it will have significant benefits for the public and motorists, including:

• Improved safety for pedestrians
• Elimination of potholes
• Eased traffic congestion
• Improved water quality
• Improved transit speed and reliability
• Real-time information for travelers

This work is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006 and by a Washington State Transportation Improvement Board grant.
