One Lane of Mercer Street to be Closed for Two Weeks


(SEATTLE)--A contractor working on private property will close a lane on the north side of Mercer Street from just west of Westlake Avenue N, past Terry Avenue N starting January 28. The lane will remain closed 24 hours a day for two weeks. A temporary sidewalk will be provided. The closure will allow the contractor to work on a shoring wall.

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.
