Beginning Saturday, Sept. 22 traffic on Pike Street will be detoured at Broadway to facilitate construction of the First Hill Streetcar. This detour will begin at 5 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22 and continue until Monday, Sept. 24 at 5 a.m. Traffic will be maintained on Broadway but no left turns will be allowed at Pike Street. East and west traffic on Pike will be required to turn right at Broadway. Local access, pedestrian access, and access to businesses will be maintained during this work.
Traffic management for this event has been coordinated with the Seattle AIDS Walk and 5K Run which will also take place on Capitol Hill streets this weekend.
This project began in April of this year and is expected to be completed in spring 2014.
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.
