If you live or work around this area you probably noticed surveyors on the street last week. SDOT is getting ready to lengthen the left-turn lanes on Elliott Avenue W. at West Mercer Place. Construction will begin June 13 and will last 3-6 weeks.
Why are we doing this? This work was identified as a cost effective improvement through SDOT’s analysis of potential improvements to West Mercer Place. The improvement will reduce the occurrence of back-ups from the left-turn lanes spilling into the southbound lanes on Elliott Avenue W.
To learn more about the improvements, other recommendations for West Mercer Place, and the latest designs for the Mercer West project, please attend the Open House on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. in the Rainier Room of the Seattle Center.
