Mercer Corridor Project
Weekly Construction Preview

mercer_logo_200This week, crews will begin construction on the north side of Mercer Street between Fifth Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N and the east side of SR 99 between Valley Street and Harrison Street. They will also continue to work on underground utilities on Valley Street, Broad Street and Westlake Avenue N north of Mercer Street.

 Activities this week include:

  • Begin sidewalk and pavement removal on the north side of Mercer Street between Fifth Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N and on the east side of SR 99 between Valley and Harrison streets.
  • Begin sidewalk removal on the north side of Roy Street between Queen Anne Avenue N and First Avenue N in preparation for signal improvements at both intersections. Please note, the north sidewalk on Roy Street and adjacent parking lane will be closed for approximately two weeks.
  • Continue Seattle City Light and communications duct bank work on Valley Street between Terry Avenue N and Westlake Avenue N.
  • Continue landscaping installation on Fairview Avenue N between Valley Street and Mercer Street and on the south side of the I-5 on-ramps at Mercer Street.

Reminder: Mercer Street between Fifth Avenue N and Ninth Avenue N is now restricted to two eastbound lanes following a full weekend closure of Mercer Street and SR 99 and Broad Street is now open for eastbound and westbound traffic.

Traffic engineers will continue to:

  • Monitor traffic on Mercer Street, Fifth Avenue N, Broad Street and Ninth Avenue N.
  • Monitor traffic at the Westlake Avenue N and Mercer Street intersection.
  • Monitor traffic flow at the Dexter Avenue N and Mercer Street intersection.
