Construction overview

  • This week crews placed gravel in the space between the taxi holding area and Elliott Bay Trail between Columbia and Marion streets. Gone are the barrels and caution tape.
  • Also this week, a new pick up/drop off area was installed at Colman Dock, north of the Columbia crosswalk on the western curb. The zone is large enough for two cars and is a three-minute load and unload except from 3 to 6 p.m.  Monday through Friday.
