From Jan. 25 to Feb. 9 a crew will conduct utility potholing along Penny Drive and two locations on NE 50th St near 44th Ave NE. The work is being done to identify utilities under the roadways to support the design for the proposed Surgery Building and Parking Garage.

A vacuum truck and a small crew will work from 7 am to 3:30 pm each day. Construction noise will be generated off and on during this work; noisy activities will not begin before 8 am. Traffic control will be set up around the work zones.

On NE 50th St, the work will require taking one traffic lane to accommodate utility trucks in the street. Parking restrictions will be in place and flaggers will be present during the work to direct drivers and pedestrians around the work zones.

On Penny Drive, two-way traffic will be maintained when possible, but at times Penny Drive will be reduced to one lane. The Mountain Loading Dock, Ocean 7 Staff Entrance and Lot 4 will all be temporarily impacted during this work. Access to Lots 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be maintained at all times. Pedestrians and bikes will be rerouted. Please allow additional time for travel along Penny Drive during this work.

Please call 206-987-8000 or email [email protected] with questions.
