Street light poles installed
Permanent street light poles have been installed along the east side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets.

Paving between N 165th and N 175th Streets at night; northbound lane closure on Aurora
Asphalt work begins! Crews will begin laying base courses of asphalt on top of graded crushed rock in the work zones on Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets. Asphalt requires time to cool, so to continue to maintain access to businesses as much as possible, this work will occur at night on Wednesday and Thursday. A single northbound lane on Aurora will be closed at night to provide enough room to safely complete this base paving. The work zone will not yet be open to general traffic.

Large vault installation at N 175th Street and Midvale Avenue; lane closures
Crews will begin installing another large underground utility vault and constructing the joint utility trench (JUT) at the northwest corner of Midvale Avenue and N 175th Street. Lanes on Midvale Avenue and N 175th Street may be reduced in this area to provide enough room for safe construction. Please drive safely, pay attention to the direction of flaggers, and follow posted pedestrian detours.

Crews are also preparing to install the JUT just east of Midvale Avenue on the north side of N 175th Street. This work is likely to occur in the next couple weeks.

Forming and pouring concrete sidewalks, driveways and bus pads
Crews will continue grading and forming up sidewalks and driveways on the east side of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets. Concrete requires precise grading and time for pouring and curing, but crews will continue to maintain access to businesses by working on one side of a driveway at a time. This means driveways will be narrow, so please drive carefully in and out of businesses. Concrete work is expected to take a couple weeks in this area.

Crews will continue grading, forming and pouring concrete curbs and preparing for driveway work on Aurora between N 175th and N 185th Streets.

Vault installation on N 185th Street
Crews will continue vault installation on N 185th Street and will soon shift to the corner of N 185th Street and Aurora to install another vault. This work will affect pedestrian routes in the area, so please pay attention to detours and the direction of flaggers.

Water connections
Seattle Public Utilities and Marshbank crews will transfer and abandon some water service connections in the vicinity of N 175th Street. Affected businesses will be notified of any planned water outages.
