PROJECTS IN THIS AREA

Alaskan Way Construction

The work zone on Alaskan Way has expanded to Pike Street. Similar to construction underway between S King and Marion streets, intersecting east/west streets will remain open and pedestrian access will be maintained. Businesses with mid-block vehicle driveways will be provided a route adjacent to the work zone. Initial activities include establishing work zones, mobilizing equipment, locating utilities, surveying, delivering materials, and breaking pavement for excavation and utility installation. View our construction flyer for more detail on work expanding to Pike Street.

Pier 58

Removal of Pier 58 began on Sept. 4, 2020, in response to recent movement and continued deterioration of the structure.

During active pier removal on Sept. 13, 2020, the northeast corner of Pier 58 collapsed. We were in the process of removing a concrete section of the pier to delay further pier movement and deterioration. The structure has ongoing monitoring systems for movement in place. We will continue removing Pier 58 as soon as it is safe to do so and will evaluate the best approach for the remainder of the work. We will continue to share information as the situation develops.

Pier 58 removal is expected to be completed by early 2021. The design of the pier rebuild is ongoing with construction scheduled to begin in 2022.
