Other project area work:
- As part of the Waterfront Seattle Program, between June 7 and June 30, crews will conduct potholing underneath the Alaskan Way Viaduct between Bell and King streets to locate underground utilities. Anticipated work hours are 8 AM – 4 PM, Monday – Friday. This will include work on Alaskan Way where lanes may be shifted, but two-way traffic will be maintained. Traffic may be temporarily reduced to one lane at select locations, and flaggers will be used to keep traffic moving in both directions. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be directed around work areas as necessary. Please follow posted detours. Crews will be using a vactor truck, so increased noise can be expected. Please call the Waterfront Seattle Program line at 206.499.8040 if you have questions or concerns.
- Phase 2 of Seattle City Light’s Central Waterfront Transmission Line Relocation Project is underway between Yesler Way and South King Street.

Night work will occur at Yesler Way from 9 PM to 5 AM, Sunday through Thursday nights through early June. During night work, ferry traffic to Colman Dock at Yesler Way will be inbound only – all outgoing traffic will use Marion Street. In addition, South King Street west of Alaskan Way is closed to vehicle traffic for up to two weeks. Although vehicles are restricted, flaggers will direct pedestrian and bicycle traffic to access the Elliott Bay Trail at South King Street. Daytime work hours are from 7 AM to 5:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Visit the project website for more information.
