Myrtle Place Signalized Crossing Project

Updated: November 29, 2007

Construction Notice

Myrtle Place Signalized Crossing Project

The Seattle Department of Transportation expects to begin construction on the Myrtle Place Signalized Crossing Project in the spring of 2008, and finish by summer 2008. The final design includes adjustments based on public comments. The Myrtle Place signalized crossing project is a safety enhancement to the larger Chief Sealth Trail development.

The Chief Sealth Trail crosses about 75 yards to the west of the intersection of South Myrtle Place and Holly Park Drive South. When complete, this additional project work around Myrtle Place will provide approximately 200 feet of new paved bicycle trail and a new full signal at the intersection of South Myrtle Place and Holly Park Drive South. The paved trail will provide for an off-street connection between the Chief Sealth bicycle trail and the newly signalized intersection. The new signal crossing will replace the existing 4-way stop and will be designed to facilitate both bicycle crossings and pedestrian crossing.

The following construction work hours and traffic restrictions are expected during the spring/summer 2008 construction:

  • Normal work hours for the contractor will be 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday – Saturday.
  • One lane in each direction with limited left turns allowed
  • Parking will be prohibited as needed to allow for construction and safe, efficient traffic control.
  • Some night work will be necessary.

SDOT will post and distribute notices with construction updates as needed during the project.
