We’re placing conduit. Here’s what you can expect.
As the initial closure of the east side of the intersection wraps up, we’ll be moving to the west side of the 23rd Ave S and S Judkins St intersection on Monday, February 4. We will be digging a trenching across the intersection to place conduit. Once the conduit is in, we will back-fill the hole. We will need to close that side of the intersection at least one more time to pour the permanent concrete. Please expect this first closure to last about one to two weeks.
Why do you keep the west side of the intersection open?
One question we continue to hear is, why can’t we keep the west side of the intersection open? The short answer is there isn’t enough room for the workers to work and cars to go by. It’s not safe for you as a motorist and it’s not safe for our contractors. The good news is that the closure is temporary and there are alternate routes to get in and out of the west side of the neighborhood (see map below).
We appreciate your patience. If you have any questions, please send an email to 23rdAveCorridor@Seattle.gov.
