On Saturday, February 23 from 5 a.m. until 7 p.m. the west leg of the intersection of Broadway and E Union Street will be closed to traffic to facilitate construction of the First Hill Streetcar. Additionally, southbound traffic on Broadway between E Pike Street and Madison Street will be prohibited during these hours.
A detour will be posted utilizing E Pike Street, Boren Avenue, Madison Street and Broadway. 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.
