23rd Ave construction update: Cherry intersection work October 17 and 24
E Cherry St intersection closed this Saturday and next
The E Cherry St and 23rd Ave intersection closure this weekend will be Saturday only, from 6 AM to 10 PM. Crews will likely follow the same schedule for next weekend’s work on October 24 as they continue to install storm drainage. Please see the construction flyer for a map of the detour routes, and don’t forget that you can drive or walk into the local access areas to reach homes and businesses near the intersection.
Additional weekend closures will be required for demolition and paving work in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for updates.
Other construction activities
Remember—early utility work in Zone C is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 26. On that date, crews will extend their work area north of E Union St to continue replacing the water main. Crews are currently working on the water main in Zone B, between E Cherry St and E Union St. During this work, drivers can travel both north and south on 23rd Ave, though travel will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
Crews are working to demolish and repave sidewalks from S Jackson St to E Yesler Way on the east and west sides of 23rd Ave. Please use caution and pay attention to sidewalk closures and pedestrian detours.
