Beginning Wednesday, September 19th and continuing until Friday, September 28th, Broadway will be closed, or reduced to one lane with flaggers, each night between Madison and Marion streets to facilitate construction of the First Hill Streetcar. Full closures are anticipated during the first five nights. When fully closed, detours will be posted utilizing Madison Street, Boren Street, and James Street for southbound traffic, and James Street, 12th Avenue and Madison Street for northbound traffic. Work will begin each night at 8 p.m. and continue until 6 a.m. the next morning.
Local access, pedestrian access, and access to businesses will be maintained during this work.
The City of Seattle is developing the First Hill Streetcar in partnership with Sound Transit, with funding provided through the 2008 voter approved Sound Transit 2 (ST2) transit expansion plan. Completion is planned for Spring 2014.
