    Here’s a snapshot of construction activities occurring over the next week:

    • Continued removal of a portion of sidewalk and large rip rap (rocks located along the existing seawall) at Waterfront Park to install sheet and concrete piles.
    • Continued maintenance of in-water containment systems to reduce turbidity (cloudy or hazy water) during in-water work.
    • Electrical work associated with traffic signals underneath the viaduct. Electrical work is currently active at both Marion and Columbia streets. Traffic will be routed around a work truck and work will be restricted to off-peak hours.
    • Occasional transport of equipment between Waterfront Park and Yesler Way.
    • Relocation of the Colman Dock driveway at Yesler Way northward to make room for in-water pile installation.
    • Ongoing fieldwork investigations in various locations along the waterfront starting as early as next week. Traffic will be routed around a work truck and short-term, localized parking restrictions are expected.

    What you can expect: 

    • Pedestrian detours and temporary parking restrictions in the vicinity of Marion Street associated with traffic signal work and at various locations along the waterfront due to fieldwork investigations.
    • Increased noise and vibration due to saw cutting, sheet pile installation, fieldwork investigations and the use of large equipment.
    • The multi-use path on the west side of the viaduct will be open, with detours around intersection work as necessary.
    • Trucks and oversized vehicles moving equipment and materials.
    • Construction hours are Monday through Sunday during the daytime with occasional nighttime work.
