Seattle Public Utilities will shut off the water supply to the Hartmann Building starting at 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 to work on the water main. The building will be without running water for less than 10 hours, but during that time, there will be no water for restrooms or any other use.

We have other news about the Hartmann Building. We’ve completed construction of a new sidewalk, curbs, gutters and retaining wall along the building’s Sand Point Way NE frontage. Although we still must install an irrigation system and add plantings, traffic is once again flowing without disruption.

As the Hartmann Building project winds down, we’re preparing to make other major improvements to the streets around our campus starting with a new sidewalk along the hospital’s frontage with Sand Point Way NE. The sidewalk will also include a separate two-way path for bikes, called a cycletrack.

Work also will begin on a new traffic signal, crosswalk and redesigned intersection at 40th Ave. NE and Sand Point Way NE. Our contractor – Sellen Construction – will take a number of steps to maintain safe traffic flows during construction including posting flaggers at the site. We’ll provide more information as we get closer to the start of construction.

Most of this work is part of the Livable Streets Initiative we launched in conjunction with our Building Hope expansion.
