This weekend several road closures are scheduled in the First Hill neighborhood to facilitate construction of the First Hill Streetcar. James Street will be closed to through traffic at Broadway tonight (Friday, November 16th) from 7 p.m. until Monday, November 19th at 5 a.m. In addition, the intersection of Broadway and Madison will be closed Saturday and Sunday, November 17th and 18th from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Local access between James and Madison streets will be provided from James.
At James, east-west traffic will be required to make right turns onto Broadway. Broadway will be open to two-way traffic; however, there will be no left turns at James. Detours will be posted.
Local access, pedestrian access, and access to businesses will be maintained during this work.
The City of Seattle is developing the First Hill Streetcar in partnership with Sound Transit, with funding provided through the 2008 voter approved Sound Transit 2 (ST2) transit expansion plan. Completion is planned for spring 2014.
