It’s been a busy eight weeks for the Elliott Bay Seawall Project as we worked on Alaskan Way preparing the area for construction of the new Seawall this fall.

If you’re down along the waterfront, you might notice additional on-street parking spaces (28 to be exact) installed for the summer, just north of Pine Street on the east side of Alaskan Way.

In addition, six “Yield to Peds” signs have been installed on the multi-use path adjacent to Alaskan Way, improving pedestrian and bicycle safety.

Additional facts from the work:

  • 27 temporary utility poles installed along Alaskan Way
  • Approximately 500 cubic yards of material excavated and removed
  • 4,500 linear feet of conduit installed

All of this work will help us be prepared to begin work and hit the ground running this fall. Remember, the waterfront will remain open for visitors!

Over the summer months you can expect to see Seattle City Light crews carrying out limited utility relocation work on Alaskan Way. Please visit the Elliott Bay Seawall’s project web page if you would like more information.
