The Seattle Public Utilities will repair a sewer main starting tonight at First Avenue and Yesler Way as part of the annual spot sewer repair program. When crews are working, First Avenue will be closed from South Washington Street to Yesler Way, with a detour to Occidental Avenue South.
The contractor plans to work Wednesday, July 15 from 6 p.m. to midnight and Thursday, July 16 from 6 p.m. until early the next morning. On Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19, the crews will work from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day. Tentatively, they will return on Tuesday July 21 and Wednesday July 22 and work from 6 p.m. to midnight. The streets will remain open to traffic at all other times.
We appreciate the patience of drivers during this and other nearby critical construction work.
