Closures on 8th and on Stewart in Downtown this Weekend

SEATTLE- Two streets will be closed this weekend in downtown Seattle, required for use of cranes on private construction projects.

On Saturday, September 27, Eighth Avenue will be closed from Olive to Pine streets from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The sidewalk on the west side of Eighth will also be closed.

On Sunday, September 28th, Stewart Street will be closed from Ninth to Terry avenues from 4:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. The sidewalk on the west side of Stewart will also be closed. Traffic will be detoured from Stewart (one-way westbound) to Terry and then to Lenora (also one-way westbound).

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
