Utility relocation work begins on August 24
In preparation for construction to build the Ship Canal Trail, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) will relocate a gas line that runs under the Nickerson/15th Avenue W ramp, just north of W Emerson Street. To complete the work, PSE must close the Nickerson/15th Avenue W ramp to southbound 15th Avenue W from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day for up to five days, beginning August 24. The roadway will remain open on weekends, with work resuming August 29 and 30 as needed.
During this utility work PSE will detour most traffic from W Nickerson Street to W Emerson Street heading east, to access southbound 15th Avenue W. Due to the tight turns, large trucks will be detoured onto westbound W Emerson Street, south along Gilman Avenue W to 20th Avenue W, and then eastbound on W Dravus Street to 15th Avenue W.
Seattle Department of Transportation work in the area, to build the Ship Canal Trail, is expected to begin in early September.
