23rd Ave construction update: E Union St work update, E James St intersection closure this weekend

E Union St water main work update
The first weekend of water main work at the E Union St and 23rd Ave intersection went well, which means the next closure at this intersection will be the weekend of October 9 – 12. We’ll share a reminder in our email next week with any updates regarding the closure.
Crews work to install a new section of the water main at the intersection of E Union St and 23rd Ave on Saturday, September 26.
Upcoming E James St intersection closure
Our contractor has confirmed that beginning 6 AM this Saturday, October 3, crews will close the E James St and 23rd Ave intersection to complete work on the storm drain. The intersection will reopen no later than 6 AM on Monday, October 5. Southbound travelers, please follow the signed detour on 21st Ave and avoid cutting through on neighborhood streets. 

King County Metro routes 3, 4, and 48 and their bus stops will be affected by this work; look for posted Rider Alerts and learn more by calling Metro at 206-553-3000.

For more information about the work, including a map of the detour route, please see theconstruction notice.
Upcoming construction activities
  • Construction 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.
  • Traffic revisions and temporary side street closures will continue as crews replace the water main between E Cherry St and E Union St. During this work, drivers can still travel both north and south on 23rd Ave, though travel will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Check out the construction notice for details. This work will continue north of E Union St around mid-October – more information coming soon.
