Temporary signal work (night work)

This week crews will work on the temporary signals at the intersection of N 185th St and Aurora Ave. Switching power from the old signals to these temporary signals will occur at night and with police assistance to maintain safety.

Vault installation on Aurora Ave N
Crews will continue installing underground utility vaults during the daytime at multiple locations on the east side of Aurora Ave between N 165th and N 175th streets and on N 175th St. Each vault is expected to take two to three days to install. Flaggers will be onsite to maintain a safe work zone and pedestrian access.

Temporary lane closures at Midvale Ave N and N 175th St

Crews will continue drainage work at the intersection of N 175th Str and Midvale Ave N, just east of Aurora. This work will occur Monday and Tuesday nights. Traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction on N 175th St from 8 pm to 5 am. Work is expected to occur at the intersection of Midvale Ave and N 175th St during the daytime on Thursday and Friday.

The entrance to Top Foods at the N 175th St and Midvale Ave intersection will be open over the weekend, but temporarily closed beginning Monday through Wednesday morning. Drivers should access Top Foods from its Aurora entrance off Ronald Place or its east entrance off N 175th St.

Lane striping on Aurora Ave N complete
Lanes on Aurora Ave N between N 165th and N 175th streets have been shifted west to allow construction to begin on the east side. There are still two lanes of traffic in each direction on Aurora, but there is no longer a center turn lane due to lack of space during construction. Drivers are encouraged to take left turns at the signalized intersections at N 165th and N 175th streets.

I certainly feel the updates through this area are great; however, the allowed construction times at night, I find somewhat useless & horrible for residents. The noise is incredible! And, again to be honest, I don't entirely see the crews working as hard throughout the day-time?! I wish the city cared about it's residents sleep. You won't find me voting "yes" on another Shoreline Tax/land improvement bill.
