Rescheduled: Bus Shelter Removal on NE 45th St near 42nd Ave NE

The work to remove the bus shelter has been rescheduled and will now begin on Monday, Dec. 9. Crews will demolish the westbound bus shelter on NE 45th St near 42nd Ave NE. The shelter is owned by Seattle Children’s and is located on the north side of the NE 45th St. The Metro bus stop will remain, only the shelter is being removed. Work will occur during daytime hours and will be ongoing for a week. Demolition of the concrete pad the shelter sits on will be noisy at times. Once the shelter is removed, the area will be replanted and blended with the surrounding landscaping. Metro Route 78 riders should use the existing westbound bus stop further up the hill on NE 45th St during this work.
