Beginning Monday, May 7th, the Rainier Tower Project will close the “BUS ONLY” lane on 4th Avenue between University and Union Streets 24/7, except for the afternoon peak from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays. The lane will be used for construction staging and deliveries necessary to support the construction of this tower and hotel. During weekday morning peak from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., parking on the west side of 4th Ave on this same block will also be restricted to allow for a left turn lane to Union St. The lane closure and parking restrictions are expected to continue through the end of 2019, when the hotel is complete and the tower project is nearing completion. SDOT would like to thank the public for its patience while this work is being completed.
