The first of three two-day closures will take place starting this weekend on Lake Washington Boulevard through the Washington Park Arboretum to allow crews to make streetlight, safety and landscape improvements. Because of special events on Saturday, the closure this weekend will start on Sunday, July 15 at 3 a.m. and continue through 6 p.m. on Monday, July 16.
Park and boulevard users, including bicyclists and pedestrians, should anticipate closures from Foster Island Road on the north end, to Arboretum Drive on the south end of the park. During the closures, access to the Japanese Garden parking lot will be available from the south end of Lake Washington Boulevard East. Access to the Graham Visitor’s Center and the north end of the Arboretum will be provided from the north end of Lake Washington Boulevard East from Foster Island Drive.
On Sunday, crews will resurface the street from Interlaken Drive to a point south of Wilcox Bridge. On Monday, crews will install streetlights, crosswalk signs, and speed cushions.
Additional closures are planned for August 10-13 from 7 p.m. on Friday until Monday morning, and September 8-9 from Saturday morning through Sunday evening, to coincide with scheduled 520 Bridge closures.
Improvements by Seattle Parks and Recreation, University of Washington, Seattle City Light, and Seattle Department of Transportation are being coordinated to maximize project efficiencies and to minimize closure times.
