Take caution of work crews when driving on Roosevelt Way Northeast for the next week or so.
Crews this week got started on the restriping project that will add a bike lane on the uphill portions and “sharrows,” a shared car-bike lane, on the downhill portions of Roosevelt Way between Northeast 85th Street and Northeast 105th Street.
Carol McMahan, with the Seattle Department of Transportation, says the work should take about a week, depending on how much the weather cooperates.
Today crews were working at moving the center line – and marking it with new yellow buttons – to make room for the bike lanes, and McMahan said that within a few days they will probably start painting new parking lane stripes, which means there also will be some temporary parking restrictions on Roosevelt to allow enough room for the striping to take place.
So in addition to keeping your eye out for work crews, take heed of any temporary parking signs before you park your car on Roosevelt.
