In October, CHS reported that the City of Seattle had secured the $3 million needed to plan an extension of the streetcar route to north Broadway — and, perhaps, beyond. Next week, the city’s transportation planners are holding an open house to tell you more about the plan that could push the streetcar line — and its associated bicycle components — all the way to Volunteer Park. The announcement for Thursday’s event and a fact sheet on the $25 million extension are below. We’lll have an update on the project prior to the open house.
Speaking of the streetcar, there are also a few street closures to be aware of this weekend as the line’s construction continues. You’ll also find details on those.
Streetcar construction will require closures this weekend where work is underway near the Boren/Broadway intersection.
Additionally, from Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. until Sunday Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. the Broadway/Boren intersection will be closed to all through traffic with the exception of a single northbound lane on Broadway maintained through the intersection. Northwestbound traffic on Boren will be required to turn right on Broadway. Detours will be posted.
