An intersection closure previously scheduled for this weekend has been canceled. The intersection of South Jackson Street and Second Avenue Extension will NOT be partially closed to traffic this weekend. This closure had been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. until Sunday, Nov. 17, at 11 a.m. to accommodate track construction for the First Hill Streetcar, but the contractor completed work in this intersection earlier than anticipated.
When complete, the First Hill Streetcar Line will have ten stations along a two and one-half mile route from South Jackson Street and Occidental Avenue South to Broadway and Denny Way. 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 mid-2014. For further information, visit the project website at http://www.seattlestreetcar.org.
