Update: Final restoration of alleyway between NE 43rd and NE 45th Streets

Publish Date


Starting as early as Friday, October 25th, Sound Transit’s contractor and Seattle City Light will pour concrete around the electrical vaults in the alleyway. This work will require complete closure of the alleyway, which means there will be no pedestrian or vehicular access. Once this work is finished, the alleyway will open to pedestrians and service vehicles only. 


Concrete pour around vaults will happen between Friday, 10/25/19 and Wednesday, 11/13/19, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The alleyway will reopen for pedestrians and service vehicles by November 15th, 2019.

  • There will be no pedestrian access allowed while work is taking place.
  • There will be additional noise.
  • The garbage dumpsters will still be moved to the south end of the alley on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
