23rd Ave construction update: E Union St intersection closure this weekend, upcoming work at E Cherry St and in Zone C

Reminder: Intersection closure at E Union St this weekend
This weekend, crews will close the intersection of E Union St and 23rd Ave to traffic to continue working on the water main under the street. The work will begin at 1 PM on Saturday, October 10 and the intersection will reopen no later than 6 AM on Monday, October 12. There will be detours, changes to bus service, and temporary water service interruptions in connection with this work: please see the construction notice for details.

Important note – if you’re trying to reach homes, businesses, and churches near the intersection during a closure, you are allowed to drive into the areas marked for local access. Pedestrian access will also be maintained throughout the work.

We expect to complete the water main work at E Union St during this weekend’s closure. Additional weekend closures will be required for drainage, demolition, and paving work, but have not yet been scheduled.
Upcoming closures at E Cherry St intersection
Starting the weekend of October 16 – 19, crews will close the intersection of E Cherry St and 23rd Ave for two consecutive weekends to work on the storm drain and begin
demolition and paving work. Additional weekends of work will be required this fall. As some of the work is weather dependent, we will provide weekly updates on any changes to the schedule. Please see the construction flyer for more information about the closures.
Later start to early water main work in Zone C
To those of you who received our flyer about water main work starting this weekend between E Union St and E Madison St, the start date for work in Zone C has been pushed out to Monday, October 26. We will share an updated work notice on our website and in next week’s email when the new work details are confirmed.

As we mentioned last week, construction activities will be extending north of E Union St so that crews can continue replacing the water main throughout the corridor. Work on the water main is currently underway in Zone B.
Other ongoing construction activities
  • 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.
