Columbia Street to be Closed at Fourth Avenue this Weekend

SEATTLE—Part of the Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street intersection will be closed for repairs this weekend, weather permitting, starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 8 and opening in the early morning on Monday, January 11. Two traffic lanes on Fourth Avenue will remain open. Columbia between Third and Fourth Avenues will be closed to vehicles except for destinations within the block.  Pedestrians will be able to cross Fourth Avenue on at least one side of Columbia. 

While the closure is in effect, construction crews will remove and replace concrete panels in the roadway. Once the new replacement panels harden, the contractor will reopen the intersection.
