SDOT advises travelers of construction and a temporary turn restriction at the intersection of 23rd Ave and E Union St from February 7 – 8. This schedule is weather-dependent and subject to change. In the event of unsuitable weather, the work may be postponed to later in the week.
From 7 a.m. on Tuesday, February 7, to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 8, travelers can expect the following:
- Right turns from southbound 23rd Ave to westbound E Union St will be closed to traffic.
- Drivers seeking to head westbound from southbound 23rd Ave will continue south on 23rd Ave to E Cherry St and use 14th Ave to return to East Union St.
- Northbound 23rd Ave remains closed between E Union St and E John Street with a detour to Martin Luther King Jr Way.
- All other directions of travel through the intersection will be maintained.
- The King County Metro bus stop on the northwest corner of 23rd Ave and E Union St, which serves Route 2 (westbound) and Route 48 (northbound), will be temporarily moved to 22nd Ave during this work. For information about bus service and Rider Alerts, visit Metro Online at http://metro.kingcounty.gov/alerts/ or call 206-553-3000.
