This weekend there will be two partial intersection closures along Broadway in the First Hill neighborhood. Both the west leg of the Broadway and Madison Street intersection and the west leg of the Broadway and Boren Avenue intersection will be closed from Friday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m. until Saturday, March 30 at 10:00 p.m. to facilitate construction of the First Hill Streetcar. Both north-and southbound traffic on Broadway will be allowed through these intersections but westbound turns to Madison Street and Boren Avenue will not.
Signed detours will be in place to assist drivers traveling through these intersections and 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.
