Yesler Bridge Rehabilitation Project: Update, February 2017

The Yesler Way Bridge Rehabilitation Project has been going quite well, and is now preparing for a major milestone—the placement of new girders across 4th Avenue. Carefully putting these structures into place will require the full closure of 4th Ave S between Washington and Jefferson Streets several nights this month.

Crews will close 4th Ave S to all traffic on Monday, February 20 through Friday, February 24 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, and bus detours will be placed around the 4th Ave S closure. Check out the detour map to see alternate routes.

Please expect the following:

  • Closure of 4th Ave S between S Washington and Jefferson Streets from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday, February 20 through Friday, February 24
  • Large construction vehicles, lights noise from trucks, back-up alarms, and other equipment
  • Pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, and bus detours around the closure

The Yesler Way Bridge Rehabilitation Project, which will improve safety and reliability while preserving the bridge’s historical elements, will continue through fall of 2017.
