Construction alert: U District Station – July 13, 2015

Early work hours planned for Wednesday-Friday, July 15-17

Crews building the U District Station are planning to begin work around 6 a.m. Wednesday through Friday, July 15-17. Crews will be excavating the light rail station box, pouring concrete, and hauling materials offsite using Brooklyn Avenue NE.

The City of Seattle has approved a temporary noise variance to perform this work between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. No high impact noise activities (such as jackhammering) are scheduled to take place before 8 a.m. or after 5 p.m. for this work.

What to expect:

  • Excavation activities at the ground level of the light rail station box
  • Use of the conveyor system to bring dirt from the excavation area to street level
  • Loading and hauling dirt on Brooklyn Avenue NE
  • Concrete trucks accessing the site from the southeast gate on NE 43rd Street
  • Noise from equipment operations (crane, excavator, drill rigs, concrete pump, trucks, bulldozer)

Excavation of the light rail station box is about 99 percent complete. Excavation will be completed in July.
