What to expect

In early December, crews will open new pavement in the middle of First Avenue South and shift the work zone to the eastern edge of the street between South Royal Brougham Way and South Dearborn Street. This will temporarily remove street parking on the east side of First Avenue South for about one month. A portion of the sidewalk on the east side of First Avenue South will additionally be closed, with pedestrians detoured around the work area. 

Beginning December 1, crews will begin drilling shafts for the new equipment garage attached to the SR 99 tunnel operations building. Expected work hours are 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. This work will not affect access to the 505 First Avenue South building garage or doors along Railroad Way South.

The project completes road work around the south portal of the SR 99 tunnel, near Seattle's stadiums.
