Alaskan Way Construction Moving North of Pike in December

As early as December 2, Waterfront Seattle will expand its work area north of Pike Street in the footprint of the former viaduct to begin construction of the new Elliott Way. This road over the railroad tracks and carved into the hillside will be a key connection between Alaskan Way and Belltown. Activities include establishing the work zone, mobilizing equipment, locating utilities, and removing asphalt and landscaping. View our construction flyer for details on work happening north of Pike Street.

Construction to rebuild Pier 62 began in December 2017 and is anticipated to be complete by end of 2019. Visit the Pier 62 webpage to learn more about the project and what the completed pier will look like.
