Perhaps we should just wait and post about 10th Ave East again when it’s not going to be closed for the weekend. Like we said before, that shortcut to Delmar where you drive the wrong way through the Do Not Enter sign in front of Seattle Prep? Don’t do that. Details on this weekend’s work from SDOT:
Tenth Avenue E Closed for Construction this Weekend
Closure: Northbound from E Boston to E Roanoke streets
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and its contractor are making street improvements on Tenth Avenue E this weekend. The work will building a concrete lane on the east side of Tenth from the East Miller to East Boston streets.
The work will begin at 7a.m. Saturday, the demolition and removal of the existing street starting at 8 a.m. The work is expected to be substantially complete by Sunday evening.

Meanwhile, neighbor Natasks about some work done to :
Any idea what the deal is with the street work on Madison? I live near 25th, where it looks like they’re just taking off the top layer of asphalt, working every few days and closing nearby bus stops for the duration. Speculation is that it has to do with making the surface grippier by winter, but I’d like to get the full scoop.
According to SDOT, Nat’s “grippier” hypothesis is right on and that work should be complete. Given the winter weather Cliff Mass says we should expect, we’re going to need all the grippiness we can get around here.
