Seattle Department of Transportation’s demolition contractor has rescheduled nighttime lane closures and demolition activities on Mercer Street, previously announced for May 10 – May 14, to occur beginning Monday, May 17 at 7 p.m. Closures may continue each evening through Friday, May 21.
Up to two of Mercer’s four lanes between Fairview Avenue North and Terry Avenue North will be closed to allow SDOT’s contractor to remove remaining walls and foundations at 1000 Mercer Street (the former West Marine building). Beginning at 7 p.m. the left lane of Mercer Street will close. At 10 p.m. the adjacent lane may close, if needed. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.
