The labor dispute between the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 302 and the Associated General Contractors of Washington has been resolved. Seattle Children’s projects that have been delayed by the strike will resume Monday, Sept. 10.

At the hospital, the following work is planned for the week of Sept. 10:

  • Construction of the new Emergency Department (ED) driveway to 40th Avenue, just south of the existing ED driveway. A portion of the sidewalk on the east side of the street will be closed, and no parking will be allowed on either side of 40th Avenue. Signs will be posted for parking closures. The Metro route 65 bus stop will remain open. A temporary walkway will be marked to route pedestrians around the closure. Flaggers will assist with pedestrian and traffic control. We expect this work to be completed by Sept. 15.
  • Removal of the island in the existing ED driveway. The old landscaped island will be paved over. The existing ED driveway will remain open during this work, though flaggers will assist with pedestrian and traffic control. Installation of new asphalt paving will generate some odor. We expect this work to be completed by Sept. 15.
  • Demolition and installation of underground utilities between the hospital and 40th Avenue. This work will take place within the area that has already been fenced off. All building entrances will remain open. This phase of work is expected to last through the end of September.

Construction noise will be generated from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. Call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.
