With a goal of getting the new road configuration for NE 75th Street in by the first day of school (two weeks from today), it’s no surprise that the Seattle Department of Transportation has started preparing the Northeast Seattle arterial so quickly.
Some pictures from today (Wednesday):
View down NE 75th Street, looking west towards the signaled intersection with 20th Avenue NE. Truck with moving lighted arrow signage telling motorists to move to the right.
View from the west side of the SDOT crew’s spot in the middle of NE 75th Street, as they stop to look at the plans for a moment.
Worker on the right watches the NE 75th Street plans, while the worker on the left paints the lane plans onto the road surface.
Above picture taken a few seconds after the previous one, showing the lane painting occurring.
A look down the hill towards 20th Avenue NE. As the crew worked in the center of the arterial, vehicles parted around them, already driving in the new configuration.
We’ll add more photos here when we have them!
Driven the new NE 75th Street configuration yet? What do you think so far? Tell us in the comments.
