S Holgate St

What’s happening now?

We're building pedestrian and bicycle safety and access improvements along westbound S Holgate St and on the S Holgate St bridge.

During construction:

Westbound S Holgate St is closed from Airport Way S to 8th Ave S; westbound drivers should follow posted detour signs to S Stacy St or S Massachusetts

The bus stop for King County Metro route 124 on westbound S Holgate St is closed during this work. Passengers should use the stop on Airport Way S north of S Hill St.

Crews have a few more activities to complete before reopening westbound S Holgate St, including paving, installing a railing, painting the crosswalk and restriping the roadway. We expect the work to last until mid-October 2017. Thank you for your patience during construction!

Project overview

The S Holgate St bridge is an important connection between Beacon Hill, The Mountains to Sound Trail, and the SODO neighborhood.

We’re making mobility improvements along S Holgate St near 8th Ave S, including replacing the stairs to the S Holgate St bridge with a more accessible ramp. We’re committed to achieving Seattle's Vision Zero goal to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030 and this project will make it safer and easier for people to walk and bike through this key connection between SODO and Beacon Hill.
