Be ready for a complete closure of E Madison St near MLK/28th Ave E next week as Seattle Public Utilities repaves the road. Work is expected to start the morning of September 26 and last all week. MLK and 28th Ave E will also be closed for one block on either side of Madison.
The work is part of the Madison Valley Stormwater Project, which passed the 75 percent completion mark earlier this month. The project is on schedule to be completed by the end of the year.
Seattle Public Utilities plans to replace temporary pavement on East Madison Street at 28
th Avenue East next week, September 26-30, following work on the local drainage system for the Madison Valley Stormwater Project. Also, Martin Luther King, Jr. Way East and 28th Avenue East will be closed for one block on each side of East Madison Street. A detour around the work area for this final, permanent paving will be in place 24-hours-a day from September 26 to September 30.
The crews plan to work from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and expect to reopen the street by 5 p.m. on Friday, September 30. On-street parking will be restricted in the work area and along the detour route.
UPDATE: Businesses will be open during the road closure. Here’s the detour map (thanks, Irenae206):
