Phase 1 construction to begin June 8
On June 8, crews working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will begin major construction on the first phase of the 23rd Avenue Corridor Improvements Project between S Jackson and E John streets. Construction will start in Zone A, which is between S Jackson and E Cherry streets. Read the construction fact sheet or visit our virtual construction open housewe launched in March to learn more.
Before major construction begins on 23rd Avenue, SDOT will be working to wrap up Phase 1 of the adjacent Central Area Neighborhood Greenway. We began installing the greenway in late February and we expect to complete it by the end of June. The greenway will create a quieter, safer route for people to bike and walk. For more information about the greenway route or list of improvements, read this handout.
SPU early utility work complete
Crews from Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) wrapped up utility preparation work on 23rd Avenue, replacing some older water service lines in preparation for replacing the 100-year-old water main underneath the road. This work began on April 6 and was completed on April 30. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this work.
Save the date: First monthly community drop-in session on May 18
Each month throughout construction, SDOT will host a drop-in session to answer questions and share the latest construction information. Join us for the first drop-in on May 18 (see details below)! Don't worry if you can't make the drop-in session, we will post all information online.
