Bridle Trails and South Rose Hill Road Work Rescheduled to Aug 21

Blackline, Incorporated worker Garrett Parks evens out the layer of slurry seal applied to Sixth Street West Aug. 14. Blackline, Kirkland’s slurry seal contractor, postponed until Aug. 21 the roads it had planned to slurry seal on Aug. 14 in the Bridle Trails and South Rose Hill neighborhoods.

Blackline, Incorporated worker Garrett Parks evens out the layer of slurry seal applied to Sixth Street West Aug. 14. Blackline, Kirkland’s slurry seal contractor, postponed until Aug. 21 the roads it had planned to slurry seal on Aug. 14 in the Bridle Trails and South Rose Hill neighborhoods.

Streets in the Bridle Trails and South Rose Hill neighborhoods, which were originally scheduled for slurry seal on Aug. 14, are now scheduled for slurry seal on Aug. 21. 


Kirkland’s slurry seal contractor made this decision to ensure that residents in those neighborhoods would have access to their roads when they returned from work in the evening. Access to those roads would have been jeopardized by the air’s high humidity, which was causing the slurry seal to dry much slower than normal. Blackline, Incorporated, doesn’t restore access to roads it has slurry sealed until the slurry seal is dry. 

Blackline did, however, finish applying slurry seal Aug. 14 to each of the eight street sections it had planned for the day in the Market and Norkirk neighborhoods.
This is the third weather-induced schedule change.


The street sections that will now be closed for slurry seal on Aug. 21 are:

N.E. 75th Street, from 127th Ave. N.E. to 130th Ave. N.E.
130th Ave. N.E., from N.E. 73rd St. to N.E. 75th St.
N.E. 74th St., from 130th Ave. N.E. to the east end ofthe cul de sac
129th Ave. N.E., from N.E. 75th St. to the south end ofthe cul de sac
N.E. 66th St., from 122 nd Ave. N.E. to 123rd Ave. N.E.
N.E. 67th St., from 122 Ave. N.E. to 123rd Ave. N.E.
123rd Ave. N.E., from N.E. 66th St. to N.E. 67th St.
