Streetcar construction to close parts of Broadway on Saturday

As First Hill streetcar construction continues on the Hill, so do the traffic issues that come with it.

On Saturday, the west leg of the Broadway and East Union Street intersection will close, as well as southbound routes on Broadway between East Pike Street and Madison Street.

The closures will last from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to the city.

Traffic will be detoured through East Pike Street, Boren Avenue, Madison Street and Broadway. Pedestrian traffic and local access won’t be affected.

You can sign up for email construction bulletins and get more information about the ongoing project at We reported on many of the changes, issues and opportunities with streetcar construction ahead here as we move toward the start of service in spring 2014.
