S. Myrtle St. to be repaved this weekend

One street on Beacon Hill will be a bit less bumpy after this weekend. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will resurface South Myrtle Street from 35th Avenue South to just west of 32nd Avenue Sout this weekend, February 18 and 19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. According to info from SDOT, “The pavement on this stretch of Myrtle Street is in poor condition. Resurfacing will improve roadway life, ride quality, and above all, safety for all roadway users—transit, general vehicular traffic, and bicyclists. This work is part of SDOT’s annual arterial street paving program.”

The full width of the street is to be repaved, with one lane left open in each direction for street traffic. There will be a police officer on site to assist navigation through the construction area. Pedestrian paths will remain open.

If the forecast calls for rain, the project may be rescheduled.

  1. Now if only we could get them to redo some of the sidewalks around here. *rolls eyes* Being legally blind, I use a white cane to get around outside; the number of times it catches on broken parts of the sidewalk just between my house and Red Apple (only about four blocks) is facepalmingly frustrating.

    I love the improvements the city has finally been making to our neighborhood. Ohhhh, yes, I do. But to be able to walk to them without worrying I’ll fall through an epic sidewalk crack and have to fight the Balrog… well, that would be even better. 🙂
