S Holgate St – Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements
Improving safety and access

Last updated: September 5, 2017

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. We expect the work to last through September 2017.
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 (see map)
  • 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.

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.

What to expect during construction:

  • Typical weekday work hours, 7 AM – 5 PM
  • Typical construction noise, dust, and vibration
  • Restrictions near the work zone:
    • Parking restrictions under the S Holgate St bridge; crews will use this area for staging equipment and materials
    • Walking and biking detours – please follow posted signs
    • Temporary driveway restrictions – we’ll notify you individually if you'll be impacted
  • The bus stop for King County Metro route 124 on westbound S Holgate St will be temporarily closed during this work; passengers should use the stop on Airport Way S north of S Hill St. For more information about bus service, look for Rider Alert notices at bus stops, visit Metro Online at http://metro.kingcounty.gov/alerts/, or call 206-553-3000

Traffic restrictions:

  • 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 (see map)
  • Drivers should expect temporary flaggers, lane shifts, and delays on the S Holgate St bridge during the installation of the pedestrian construction detour
  • Drivers should expect reduced lane widths on the S Holgate St Bridge to accommodate pedestrian access around the work zone

Schedule

Construction for this project began on May 1, 2017 and is expected to last through September 2017.

Funding

Project construction is funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Learn more about the levy at www.seattle.gov/LevytoMoveSeattle.
