At the City, we continue to follow guidance from our partners at Public Health – Seattle & King County (PHSKC), Washington State Department of Health (DOH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding COVID-19. We’re working round-the-clock to ensure our communities and our workforce can stay safe and healthy.  

Currently, the Seattle Department of Transportation is planning to continue with construction in your area. We are working closely with our Public Health — Seattle & King County partners, our construction management teams, and private contractors to ensure that everyone supporting this project is cautious and safe. If there are changes to the construction schedule or planned work, we will notify you once public information is available.  

The City of Seattle and King County are taking steps to protect the health of our community by making recommendations that are meant to slow the spread of novel coronavirus and reduce the number of people infected. Please learn more about COVID-19 at

Thank you. 


March 6, 2020
Throughout the week of March 9, we’ll continue replacing sections of road pavement and sidewalks on both N 40th St and the Green Lake Loop. We’ll also work on final repairs and tasks to prepare N 50th St for final paving.

See below for more information about new and continuing work planned for the week of March 6.

What’s New:

N 40th St:
  • Wallingford Ave N: We expect to continue work at this intersection for as long as 3 weeks. Expect shifted travel lanes and pedestrian detours.
    • The bus stop on the NE corner of N 40th St and Wallingford Ave has been relocated 60 ft to the east to allow us to complete sidewalk repairs
N 50th St:
  • We will be completing the majority of sidewalk and curb ramp upgrade work on N 50th St this week. We are still working on the curb ramp on the south side of 8th Ave NE.
  • We will continue to do final repairs and tasks before returning later this spring to complete final asphalt paving.
Green Lake Loop:
  • Green Lake Way N: We will be working from N 51st St to Kenwood Pl N and continuing north once work at the intersection of West Green Lake Way N and East Green Lake Way N is complete. Expect pedestrian detours and shifted travel lanes at that time
What’s Continuing:
  • Work Monday - Friday, from 7 AM to 7 PM 
  • For more information on our typical construction impacts, please visit our project website
N 40th St:
  • From Ashworth Ave N to Wallingford Ave N: expect pedestrian detours, shifted travel lanes, and traffic occasionally reduced to a single lane with flaggers present to rotate traffic
Green Lake Loop
  • The intersection of West Green Lake Way N and East Green Lake Way N: expect noise, pedestrian detours, and the island to be removed to maintain two-way traffic while we work

What we’ve heard: 
Each week, we’ll plan to answer a few frequently asked questions from the community.

Will my bus be impacted by construction?
We will do our best to provide notice about any upcoming bus service changes due to construction, but we also recommend you sign up for King County Metro’s Rider Alerts to stay up to date on the latest information.

We are coordinating with Puget Sound Energy (PSE) who is also working in the area.

PSE's natural gas project is wrapping up their work on N 80th St and are preparing to begin restoration work on East Green Lake Dr N between Stroud Ave N and Corliss Ave N in March.  If you have questions about their work, you can contact them at  425-505-3768 or
