Mercer Corridor Project: Lane and street closures on Friday, Nov. 7 during the day and at night

The Seattle Department of Transportation advises travelers of the following activities within the Mercer Corridor Project area scheduled for Friday, Nov. 7:

Lane restrictions on westbound Mercer Street and northbound Fifth Avenue North to accommodate concrete pours:

  • From 5 a.m. until 3 p.m., westbound Mercer Street will be reduced to a single lane between Dexter Avenue North and Fifth Avenue North.
  • From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., northbound Fifth Avenue North will be reduced to a single lane between Mercer and Roy streets.

Please note this work is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled if inclement weather occurs.

Full closure of Taylor Avenue North at Mercer Street

From 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., Taylor Avenue North will be fully closed between Roy and Mercer streets as crews pave a portion of the roadway. Travelers can expect the following impacts:

  • Turns to and from Mercer Street at Taylor Avenue North will be prohibited.
  • Travelers from Queen Anne should use Fifth Avenue North to access Mercer Street.
  • Local access to businesses on Taylor Avenue North between Mercer and Roy streets will be maintained from Roy Street.

Please plan ahead and use alternate routes when possible.

Following this work, Taylor Avenue North will continue to be restricted to southbound travel only through November as crews complete work in the roadway.


Full closure of Mercer Street between Ninth Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N night of Nov. 7

From 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7 until 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, Mercer Street will be fully closed to traffic between Dexter Avenue North and Ninth Avenue North as crews stripe sections of the roadway. This work is a critical step towards adding an additional eastbound lane on Mercer Street, anticipated to open later in November. Detour routes will be signed and police officers will manage traffic at key intersections on the detour route.
