Sidewalk Work Next Week at Hospital and 70th

The week of Sept. 26 several projects will be happening to improve sidewalks and gravel paths at the hospital campus and 70th & Sand Point Way building. Starting Monday, Sept. 26, Pacific Earthworks will be improving the gravel pathway in the pocket park at the southwest corner of the hospital campus (40th Ave NE & NE 45th St). A power buggie will be used to move gravel and other supplies; pathways will be closed intermittently during this work.

On Tuesday, Sept. 27, Precision Concrete Cutting will be onsite at the hospital to perform sidewalk repairs in several locations on the interior pathways on the south side of the hospital property. Crews are expected to work between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., noise from generators and equipment may be heard nearby.

When finished at the hospital campus on Tuesday, the crew will move to the 70th & Sand Point Way building (6901 Sand Point Way) to complete repairs to the interior pathway off of 70th. This work is expected to begin around noon and take approximately two hours to complete. Work is weather permitting and may be rescheduled in the case of rain.


Traffic Coating in Workforce Parking Lots, Sept. 21 to Oct. 7

From Sept. 21 to Oct. 7, contractors will add traffic coating to certain sections of parking lots 2 and 4 (workforce parking) on the northern portion of Seattle Children’s hospital campus, between Penny Drive and NE 50th Street. The traffic coating will help prevent water intrusion within the parking lots.

This project includes pressure washing, grinding of existing concrete, and application of the traffic coating. The pressure washing and grinding will generate moderate levels of noise from Sept. 24 to Sept. 28. Application of the traffic coating will generate some odors from Sept. 29 to Oct. 7, though the odors are expected to be minimal.

Work will occur between the hours of 6 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on weekdays (noise-generating work will begin at 8 a.m.), and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

If you have questions, please contact Sean Doull with Seattle Children’s at 206-478-0441 or Tim Meyer with Sellen at 206-730-7947.


Tree Pruning on Hospital Campus Sept. 21 & 22

On Wednesday, Sept. 21 and Thursday, Sept. 22, Bartlett Tree Experts will prune trees a number of trees around the main hospital campus. This pruning is part of routine grounds maintenance.

Upcoming Paving and Striping Projects at Hospital Campus

Seattle Children’s is planning two paving and striping projects at the hospital campus in July. Here are details of each.

Lot 4 paving and striping — July 18 to 19 and July 23 to 24

Lot 4 is located on the north side of the hospital campus and is used for workforce parking. The paving will take place on Monday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 19. Neighbors may hear some noise from grinding and saw cutting of existing asphalt on these dates between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Placement of new asphalt will generate odors.

Lot 4 will be striped with new paint on Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, July 24 between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Neighbors may smell odors during the striping process, but they are expected to be mild.

Penny Drive paving and striping — July 22 and 25

On Friday, July 22, and Monday, July 25, crews will repave and restripe portions of Penny Drive at the hospital campus. Neighbors may hear some noise from grinding and saw cutting of existing asphalt on these dates between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Placement of new asphalt will generate odors. Striping will occur on these days as well. Neighbors may smell odors during the striping process, but they are expected to be mild.

Both projects are weather-dependent and are subject to change based on conditions.

Crane To Be Used at Hospital Campus April 16

On Saturday, April 16, construction personnel will deliver a large piece of mechanical equipment (a deaerator tank) to Seattle Children’s hospital campus and will use a crane located on Seattle Children’s property to move the tank. The crane will arrive at approximately 6 a.m. and will be set up at that time. We expect all work to be complete by 11 a.m. Flaggers will provide traffic control as needed, but all public streets will remain open and on-street parking will not be affected. Neighbors may hear noise while the crane is being set up, operated, and disassembled, from construction vehicle back-up beepers, and when the truck carrying the crane enters and exits the site.

This work is weather-dependent and subject to change based on conditions. Please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org with questions.


Tree Maintenance Work around Ocean, Mountain and Springbrook

Starting Monday, Dec. 13 through Wednesday, Dec. 15, there will be tree work on the hospital campus between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. that will primarily affect the Ocean and Mountain buildings as well as the Springbrook property. Tree pruning around Ocean and Mountain will occur Monday and Tuesday with no impacts to staff or visitor parking but will create some noise from chainsaws and clippers. The removal of hazardous trees that were damaged in a recent storm at Springbrook and near Ocean garage will occur on Wednesday with similar noise impacts. For questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, Manager of Grounds Maintenance.


Drone Photography at the Hospital Campus Dec. 13 to Dec. 17

As part of a Facilities Conditions Assessment (FCA) project, drones will be capturing photographs of the hospital campus the week of Dec. 13.  The purpose of the FCA project is to complete a thorough mechanical, electrical and architectural assessment of hospital campus.

Drones, along with some digital cameras, will be capturing photographs and thermal imaging of all the hospital campus buildings. The thermal imaging must be done during the wintertime to best capture the heat loss of the buildings; however, this work is weather dependent and may have to be rescheduled in the case of heavy rain.

Images will capture the roofs and all the exterior walls of the buildings. The drones will be traveling up and down the outside walls and outside windows. Neighbors may briefly see the drones above the hospital or adjacent to buildings at times during this work. We don’t expect any noise issues. The drone work will be coordinated with the helicopter landings.

For any questions or concerns, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.
