On Saturday, April 2, Seattle Department of Transportation crews will remove the kiosk now located on Fifth Avenue just south of Union Street. Up to two lanes will be closed on Fifth Avenue between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. Pedestrians will be routed around the work area.
Crews will remove the kiosk using a crane, restore the sidewalk with pavers, and replace the traffic signal controller box. (There is a traffic signal control box inside the kiosk.)
The Metropolitan Improvement District (MID) requested the removal of the kiosk after receiving feedback from the community, and worked with the Department of Neighborhoods and the Seattle Department of Transportation to obtain the grant from the Neighborhood Projects Fund to pay for the removal.
