On Wednesday, Nov. 28, construction crews will remove and relocate two Emergency Department (ED) signs and installing a third at the hospital campus:

  • Relocate the “Emergency” sign on the canopy
  • Relocate the directional sign at the ED driveway onto 40th Avenue NE
  • Install a new ED sign at the northeast corner of 40th Avenue NE and NE 45th Street

This work is one of the final steps in modifying the ED entrance and drop-off in preparation for Building Care construction. Once the signs have been relocated, the new “looped” ED driveway system to 40th Avenue NE will open. Patient families will enter at the southerly driveway and exit at the northerly driveway (which is the current ED drive) while Building Care is under construction.

A truck will be used to relocate and install the signs. Parking will be temporarily restricted on the east side of 40th Avenue NE just north of NE 45th Street while the new ED sign is installed. This work will generate normal levels of construction noise within the standard weekday work window of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please call 206-987-8000 or email [email protected] if you have questions.
