A new character has popped up on Broadway’s big red wall and the little owl’s doing its job — drawing attention.
Sound Transit’s night owl was created by ST designer Elizabeth Trunkey to help promote awareness of the start of nighttime work at the Broadway station construction site.
Starting August 1, Sound Transit’s contractor will be adding a second work shift, which could result in increased construction activity and truck traffic.The work shift hours are: 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.

With the start of second shift work on Broadway, we haven’t heard any reports of issues but let us know what you’ve experienced. Tunnel boring is underway with progress being measured in only hundreds of feet at this point. We’ve heard from only a few people that have claimed to feel vibrations or hear noise associated with the tunneling but our attempts to follow up with the people reporting these experiences haven’t been successful.
Meanwhile, another component of the red wall that we reported on last week has an update. The group working on the project has agreed to Sound Transit’s request to edit an image from the wall’s HIV30 banner.
