The Seattle Department of Transportation will close 14th Avenue South to through traffic between South Jackson Street and South Washington Street beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, March 3 and continuing until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 5. This closure is required for roadway restoration and asphalt paving associated with the First Hill Streetcar.
The following signed detour will be provided:
Northbound traffic on 14th Avenue South at South Jackson Street will be directed northwest on Boren Avenue South to 12th Avenue South, north on 12th Avenue South to East Yesler Way, then east on East Yesler Way to 14th Avenue South.
Police officers and flaggers will be present to assist with traffic and pedestrians and to ensure access to businesses and residences in the area. This work is weather dependent and rain or low temperatures may cause the schedule to change.
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.
