Like me, you probably received a door hanger today from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) announcing their 2015 Microsurfacing Project in Victory Heights (though they referred to it as “North Maple Leaf”–boo!). This process will “maintain roads by coating them with a sealant which extends their life by approximately 7-10 years.”
On days when the sealant is being applied, residents will be notified to keep the streets clear. The time table is notifying homeowners with large trees that need to be pruned by the end of April (presumably this has, or is about to happen), a reminder notice to be sent out three weeks in advance of microsurfacing for your block, and then “No Parking” signs being placed 2-3 days before work which is scheduled between July and September this year.
The city advises that “residents, pedestrians and even pets should be kept off the emulsion until it has dried” and will keep streets closed for up to 8 hours when the work is being done.
The map below details the streets that will have the work done.
