Beginning tonight, and again on Thursday and Friday nights traffic at the intersection of East Yesler Way and 12th Avenue will be reduced to one travel lane to aid construction of the First Hill Streetcar. Police officers and flaggers will be utilized to maintain two-way traffic through the intersection. On Wednesday, Feb. 13 the lane closures will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 7 a.m. the next morning. On the evenings of Thursday and Friday, Feb. 14 and 15 the lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until 7 a.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.
