Temporary Road Closure for Completion of Pedestrian Safety Improvements on West Harrison Street at Second Avenue West

Crews working for the Seattle Department of Transportation will finish constructing the new curb extension at the southeast corner of Second Avenue West and West Harrison Street, completing the final stages of the pedestrian safety improvement project. Work will occur Tuesday, October 27, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. This work is weather dependent and may be delayed due to inclement weather.

Travelers can expect the following construction impacts:
• Short-term closure at the south side of the intersection of Second Avenue West at West Harrison Street throughout project work hours.
• Temporary pedestrian detours around the sidewalk at the southeast corner of Second Avenue West and West Harrison Street.

The Seattle Department of Transportation encourages traffic to use First Avenue West and Queen Anne Avenue West during this closure. People walking and riding bikes will be routed around the closure. Please follow detour signage.

The pedestrian safety improvements where First Avenue West and Second Avenue West intersect West Harrison Street includes construction of new curb extensions, to shorten the length of pedestrian crossings and improve visibility between pedestrians and motorists, and upgrades to curb ramps to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

This project is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy, through the Neighborhood Street Fund Program.
