Beginning Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7, and continuing for the next four weekends, the intersection of Broadway and Madison Street will be closed in all four directions to aid construction of the First Hill Streetcar. Detours will be posted using Boren Avenue, James Street, 12th Avenue, Union Street and Seneca Street. The closures will begin each day at 7 a.m. and continue until 6 p.m.
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.
For further information, and a detour map that will be posted later today, visit the project Web site at www.seattlestreetcar.org or call the First Hill Streetcar Construction Hotline, (206) 257-2121.
