Drill Rig on Hospital Campus from Sept. 21 to Oct. 9

As a part of preliminary work for Project Copper (the proposed surgery pavilion and parking garage) on the hospital campus, a geotechnical consultant will be onsite to collect soil samples using a drill rig. The work is scheduled for approximately three weeks between Sept. 21 to Oct. 9 and will be done during regular work hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Soil samples will be collected in Lot 4 and near the Ocean 7 staff entrance.

Construction noise will be generated during this work. The impact to neighbors is expected to be minimal; staff and patient families will likely hear the most noise. Expect to see large trucks and heavy equipment onsite, with some parking restrictions in Lot 4 during this work. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.

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

Update: Sidewalk Work at Hospital Campus Begins Sept. 8

Updated end date of work on 45th Street.

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, construction crews will repair sidewalks and install Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) ramps in the following locations:

  • On the north side of NE 45th Street, between 45th Avenue NE and 43rd Avenue NE, from Sept. 8 to Sept. 15
  • On the south side of NE 50th Street, between Sand Point Way NE and 44th Avenue NE, from Sept. 14 to Sept. 18
  • On the north side of NE 50th Street, between Sand Point Way NE and Sand Point Place NE, from Sept. 21 to Sept. 25

The sidewalks and street parking in these areas will be closed during construction, and pedestrian detour signage will be posted. Trucks will park on the streets, but all traffic lanes will remain open. This work will generate noise, including concrete saw cutting.

All work associated with this project will occur between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. We expect to complete the project by Sept. 25; however, the construction dates could change based on weather conditions. Once the work is complete, neighbors will benefit from safer sidewalks and more accessible crossings.

If you have questions, please contact Michael Lloyd, Project Manager – Facility Planning, Design & Construction, at 601-527-1317.


Update: Tree Work Planned at Sand Point Learning Center

Updated with new start date of Sept. 19.

A landscaping crew is scheduled to perform tree work at Sand Point Learning Center on Saturday, Sept. 19, Monday, Sept. 21, and Wednesday, Sept. 23. The work includes removing trees that are dying or hazardous and pruning healthy trees to remove dead or low branches.

Chainsaws and chippers will generate noise. Some parking spots on the south side of the property will be coned off, but no impacts are expected to the north parking lot. The one-way road along the west side of the building will be closed on Sept. 23. Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. each day.

If you have questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, manager of Grounds Maintenance, at 206-307-6687.


Mulch Placement at Hospital Campus, Sept. 17

On Thursday, Sept. 17, Pacific Topsoils will place mulch at the Seattle Children’s hospital campus along the west side of 45th Avenue NE, south of the intersection with NE 47th Street. The mulch will be placed using a blower truck, which will be parked on the west side of 45th Avenue; although the truck will block the west travel lane, vehicles will still have room to drive past.

The blower truck will generate noise, and the mulch will generate some odors. If conditions are dry, the mulch placement could also create some dust. This work will occur from 9 a.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m.

If you have questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, manager of Grounds Maintenance, at 206-307-6687.

Tree Work at Hospital Campus, Sept. 14 to Sept. 18

Bartlett Tree Experts is scheduled to perform tree work at the Seattle Children’s hospital campus from Monday, Sept. 14, to Friday, Sept. 18. The work includes removing trees that are dying or hazardous, pruning healthy trees to remove dead or low branches, and removing branches leaning on structures.

Activities will take place throughout the hospital campus, including along the perimeters. Bucket trucks will temporarily park on the south side of NE 50th Street, the west side of 45th Avenue NE, and the north side of NE 45th Street. We do not expect any traffic impacts; the sidewalks, however, will be closed in those areas while work is underway.

Crews will use chainsaws and chippers, which will generate noise, each day from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We expect this work will have minimal impact on the perimeter tree buffer.
