Modular Trailer to Be Delivered via Penny Drive on Saturday, March 2

In advance of an upcoming Facilities Planning, Design and Construction project to remodel the Mountain 5 Pharmacy, a new modular trailer will be installed on the north side of Mountain 6. The trailer will serve as a temporary work location for approximately 20 Pharmacy support staff members until Building Care opens (2022).

In the morning on Saturday, March 2, a flatbed truck will deliver the trailer to the site and a crane will be used to lift the trailer into place. Traffic control will be provided along Penny Drive during this work; please drive with caution through the area. Work should be completed around noon on Saturday.


Upcoming Building Care Construction Activities: Feb. 25 to March 3

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 Feb. 25 to March 3, construction crews are scheduled to perform the following activities:

  • Drill piles
  • Install water treatment pipes
  • Form, pour and strip concrete; install rebar and grating
  • Install “lagging” to prevent cave-ins during earthwork
  • Backfill some excavated areas
  • Install duct banks for pipes and conduits
  • Prepare dirt pads for drill rigs
  • Excavation
  • Install tie backs/anchors for retaining walls
  • Patch asphalt
  • Internal activities: install pipes, valves, dampers and hangers; core drilling

Construction noise will be generated throughout the week. The noisiest work will be drilling for the piles and installing tie backs/anchors, both of which will take place all week. The asphalt patching is scheduled for Friday, March 1 and will produce minor odors.

Expect heavy truck traffic all week as excavated soil is hauled away from the site. 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.

Storm Drain Cleaning and Inspection at Hospital, Jan. 24

Construction crews will clean and inspect a newly-installed stormwater drain with a vacuum truck and a camera truck on Thursday, Jan. 24 from 8 to 11 a.m. The trucks will access the site via the paved fire lane that connects to NE 45th Street and runs between the Forest and River buildings. Spotters will be used for pedestrian safety at NE 45th Street and within Seattle Children’s property.

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.
