Landscaping on Sand Point Way, Sept. 28

On Tuesday, Sept. 28, a landscaping crew will plant vegetation in the planter strip on the east side of Sand Point Way NE between 40th Avenue NE and the hospital’s main entrance at Penny Drive. The right vehicular travel lane of northbound Sand Point Way will be closed while the planting is underway; the bike lane, however, will remain open. We expect this work will take one day to complete. The vegetation planting was previously scheduled but was delayed.

A separate project to fill a gap in the sidewalk may occur at the same time just north of the planting work. If the sidewalk project proceeds, the sidewalk will be closed that day as well.

Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.

Potential Union Picketers at Seattle Children’s Hospital Campus

The Northwest Carpenters Union (NCU) has given notice of its intent to strike. If the strike happens, union members may begin picketing outside the Building Care construction site at Seattle Children’s Hospital campus as early as Thursday, Sept. 16, and may also picket outside the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic Othello construction site.

We are hopeful the union will reach an agreement that can avoid a strike. However, we wanted to make our neighbors aware of the possibility of picketers should a strike occur.

If a strike does take place, work on Building Care that does not rely on members of NCU will continue.

Please email construction@seattlechildrens.org or call 206-987-8000 if you have questions.
