Dayton Street: Upcoming road restoration, intersection closures


Last updated 5/21/2020 at 5:55pm

The City of Edmonds is working to complete the pavement and crosswalk replacements at Fifth Avenue South and Dayton Street prior to the Phase 2 reopening of businesses in the downtown core coming soon.

The reconstruction of decorative concrete crosswalks at this location will require a 72-hour closure, as well as intermittent closures until the end of May.

During the last week of May, crews plan to wrap up paving at the intersection. This will include reconstruction of all four concrete crosswalks. The closure is necessary to allow the concrete in these newly reconstructed crosswalks time to cure and strengthen prior to allowing traffic.

During this work you can expect:

• The Dayton Street and Fifth Avenue South intersection will close around the clock starting the morning of May 26 through the morning of May 29.

• Crews will have intermittent closures of the intersection through the remainder of May.

• Vehicle traffic through the Fifth Avenue intersection will not be allowed at these times.

• Sidewalk access is allowed, but the crosswalks at the intersection will be closed; pedestrian

detours will be in place.

• Vehicle access to businesses, driveways, and parking lots leading to the intersection will be maintained.

Looking ahead:

No further full closures of the intersection are anticipated after the end of May.

Once the crosswalks are completed, crews will continue with their work east of the intersection. Workday road and intersection closures are expected in the near future for Dayton between Sixth and Ninth avenues south and intersections as the project gets closer to completion.

The City said it will provide updates on when to expect these intersection closures in future updates. Once all the road paving is complete, crews will return in late June and into July to stripe the road and complete all work.
