Eastbound traffic on James Street will be detoured south on Broadway to Jefferson Street, then east on Jefferson Street to northbound 12th Avenue. Westbound traffic on James Street will be detoured north on Broadway to Madison Street, then west on Madison Street to southbound Boren Avenue. North-and southbound traffic will be allowed on Broadway through James Street though no left turns will be permitted in that intersection.

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.
