King County Metro will be scheduling a series of street closures as they do work in the Fremont Canal Park area. Here’s the details:
Hello from King County–2nd Ave NW traffic detour begins Thursday, May 14. Access to NW Canal St from 2nd Ave NW will be closed on Thursday, May 14 and Friday, May 15. Crews will be working in the street to find underground utilities prior to relocating a City of Seattle water pipe and overflow storm drain pipe later this month. Local traffic and deliveries can access the alley north of NW Canal St through the parking lot just west of 123 NW 36th St. Burke-Gilman Trail users should follow the trail detour south of the normal trail to get around the Fremont Canal Park work area safely. What to expect during construction:
* 2nd Ave NW will be closed on Thursday, May 14 and Friday, May 15
* Work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays (as needed)
* Increased noise and activity at site
* More trucks on roads near site
Please avoid the project area and sidewalks on 36th Ave NW next to the project area. Please do not engage individuals working at the site. Community members can ask questions or share concerns about the project 24 hours a day by calling the project information line (206-205-5428).
This is the first of several temporary traffic changes to occur this summer while crews relocate city water and overflow storm drain pipes. Traffic patterns will return to normal when in-street work is not required. King County will notify affected community members before future temporary detours go into effect.
Launch shaft construction begins mid-May
Crews will also begin work to install a watertight ring of concrete cylinders called “secant piles” before digging the launch shaft for the tunneling machine. The water tight ring keeps groundwater out of the shaft area and protects against settlement. More information what to expect during secant pile installation will be provided soon.
