Upcoming Building Care Construction Activities: April 1 to April 7

Building Care construction is underway. From now until building opening in Spring 2022, there will be ongoing construction activity at the hospital campus. Seattle Children’s will publish a weekly post on this Construction Blog that outlines the work expected to occur the following week. We will also post to this blog whenever a construction activity will be especially impactful to neighbors.

From April 1 to April 7, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Load out current crane from site and load in new crane
  • Excavation
  • Install tie backs/anchors for retaining walls
  • Form concrete slab on grade and wall
  • Internal activities on L1 of Forest A (Friends of Costco Building): core drilling; install pipes, seismic restraints, firestops and hangers for multiple systems; install new pipe pathways; remove infection prevention barrier

The work to load out the current crane and load in the new crane will begin at 5 a.m. on Friday, April 5. The loading and unloading will take place within an existing no parking zone on 40th Avenue NE between NE 45th Street and Sand Point Way NE. This work is occurring early to minimize traffic impacts from the oversize load.

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The noisiest external work will be the crane load-out and load-in the morning of April 5 and installing tie backs/anchors, which will take place all week. The noisiest internal work will be the core drilling and installing new pipe pathways.

Expect heavy truck traffic as excavated soil is hauled away from the site. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.

All work (other than the crane load-out and load-in discussed above) will take place within standard construction hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.

Revised Parking Restrictions on 40th Avenue NE Due to Safety Concerns

Due to maneuvering conflicts between construction trucks and buses, parking will no longer be allowed on the east side of 40th Avenue NE between NE 45th Street and the Seattle Children’s ambulance driveway. Buses and trucks are not able to use 40th Avenue NE at the same time when parking is allowed on both sides of the street, which creates an unsafe situation. Three stalls-worth of parking space in that location were already marked as no parking; this change will convert the remaining two stalls to no parking.

To mitigate for this additional parking restriction, two parking spaces on the west side of 40th Avenue NE near the old Wells Fargo building that had previously been marked as no parking are now being returned to public parking. This means there is no net loss of on-street parking.

Safety is our top priority. This change will make travel safer on 40th Avenue NE for everyone. Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org if you have questions.
