Do you ride the South Lake Union Streetcar? Have you noticed it’s not around as much as it used to be? There is a reason for that! Through the end of the month, construction crews are overhauling how transit travels through this busy neighborhood!
Sidewalks and lane on Westlake Ave N Between Mercer and Blanchard will be temporary closed at times for construction! They will be installing signs, new sidewalks, new transit-only lanes and Bus shelters according to the Seattle Department of Transportation.
The transit upgrade is part of the Move Seattle transportation package worth $930 million! This was approved by Seattle voters back in November. The Westlake project will extend RapidRide C to South Lake Union and SDOT says it will improve service on Metro Route 40 and for the streetcar itself.
The streetcar usually runs 6am – 9pm Monday – Thursday; 6am – 11pm Friday and Saturday, and 10am – 7pm Sunday.
