Portions of NE 65th Street will close this week due to excavation and tunneling work for the light rail. The work and the closures are expected to last approximately three months.

According to Sound Transit, traffic will be affected in the following ways:

  • The north half of NE 65th Street will be closed west of 12th Ave NE for about half a block.
  • One lane of traffic will remain open on NE 65th Street in both directions.
  • Eastbound on NE 65th Street: no left turn onto 12th Ave NE. Detour to NE 64th Street to access north-bound 12th Ave NE.
