The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) advises travelers that the full closure of Taylor Avenue N at Mercer Street, originally announced for Wednesday, November 12, has been rescheduled to Thursday, November 13.

From 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Thursday, November 13, Taylor Avenue N 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 N will be prohibited.
  • Travelers from Queen Anne should use Fifth Avenue N to access Mercer Street.
  • Local access to businesses on Taylor Avenue N between Mercer and Roy streets will be maintained from Roy Street.

Following this work, Taylor Avenue N will continue to be restricted to southbound travel only as crews complete work in the roadway. Travelers from westbound Mercer Street should use Fifth Avenue N to continue north to the Queen Anne neighborhood.

Please note this work is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled in the case of inclement weather.
