Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The noisiest external activities will be the concrete work, which will occur all week. The noisiest internal work will be the drilling. Expect heavy truck traffic, primarily from concrete trucks. Construction activity is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions.

All work 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.

Crane to Be Used at Hospital Campus March 30

On Saturday, March 30, a large crane will be delivered to the hospital campus at 8 a.m. and used to remove a temporary generator located near the Mountain building. Large vehicles associated with the crane delivery will enter and exit the hospital campus via Penny Drive at Sand Point Way NE; we do not anticipate impacts to traffic on Sand Point Way. Normal construction noise levels are expected. The crane will be removed from the site by the end of the day.

Please note this work is separate from Building Care, which uses its own crane.

For questions or concerns, please call the construction pager at 206-469-5860. Thank you for your patience.

Wood-chipping will occur at the hospital campus on Tuesday, March 26 within the Building Care construction area. The chipping will generate normal levels of construction noise all day.
