Seattle Children’s is planning to install a new Emergency Department sign on the east side of 40th Avenue NE, just north of NE 45th Street. On Friday, Nov. 2, a construction crew will excavate for the new sign’s footings from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Then, on Wednesday, Nov. 7, crews will pour the sign footings in concrete from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Parking will not be permitted on the east side of 40th Avenue just north of 45th Street during these construction periods, and the sidewalk in that area will be closed. Flaggers will help direct pedestrians around the closed portion. A vacuum truck and a concrete truck will be present. Noise from these activities will be generated during the hours noted above. The sign will be installed at a later date.
