Following a nearly three-week effort to pound sheet pile through buried timbers in the area, the landside sheet pile installation near Colman Dock is complete! This week, the sheet pile installation equipment was transported to the work zone at Waterfront Park. Landside sheet pile installation will begin there as early as April 17 and is anticipated to be complete next week. This activity has proven to be noisy – increased noise and vibrations are expected.

Landside sheet pile installation complete south of Colman Dock, set to start at Waterfront Park
Here’s a snapshot of construction activities occurring over the next week:
- Landside sheet pile installation and excavation at the work zone near Waterfront Park.
- Installation of shoring wall at the work zone south of Colman Dock next week. This activity supports the surrounding soil during excavation.
- Start of jet grouting planned for the week of April 21 near Colman Dock. We are currently setting up the equipment and batch plant.
- Puget Sound Energy (PSE) will continue to conduct field investigations on the east side of the Alaskan Way Viaduct between University and Madison streets. Work will include sawcutting and excavation to uncover PSE’s high pressure natural gas pipeline. This work is anticipated to last up to one more week.
- Seattle City Light will continue utility work at night beneath Pier 56. This work, which began last week, is expected to take approximately one month to complete, but is subject to change due to the tidal schedule.
- Sawcutting to relocate utility infrastructure at Pier 56 next Monday through Wednesday, April 21-23, in the mornings from 7 to 11 am. Once sawcutting is complete, work will shift to nighttime throughout the week to complete pavement removal and excavation. During the day, steel plates will cover the excavated areas. Duct bank relocation and vault excavation work is planned to start the week of April 28 and will occur at night.
- Occasional transport of equipment between Waterfront Park and Yesler Way.
