Section of NE 185th to be narrowed for a week during Sound Transit work

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Starting as early as Thursday June 27, 2019 Sound Transit will reduce NE 185th St to a two lane road for approximately a week. 

Sound Transit will be working on setting steel pole foundations for early work construction to relocate existing utilities to construct the guideway for Lynnwood Link Extension. The work involves setting heavy equipment and drilling shafts for steel pole foundations. There will be flaggers on site of the construction work zone to keep traffic moving.

The restricted section will go across the freeway overpass from 5th NE on the west side of I-5 to 5th NE on the east side of I-5. 5th NE on the east of the freeway is already blocked off for the steel pole foundation work on 5th.
  • Sidewalks will be closed with detours at the nearest crosswalks located at 2nd Avenue Northeast and 8th Ave NE.
  • Pedestrians will be assisted by flaggers on site to safely cross through NE 185th St during construction.
  • Flaggers will stop bicyclists with vehicular traffic during construction.
A steel pole will be delivered and staged at the construction work area while crews are setting the foundation for the steel pole.

Crews will draft shafts for steel pole foundation that will cause construction noise and vibration.

King County Metro will provide alerts and updates on affected bus routes. plan your bus route 

Work hours are 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Work hours are 9am to 9pm for nights and weekend work if necessary to complete work before July 4th.
