Two construction projects on Virginia Mason’s Seattle campus are scheduled during the Sept. 27 through Oct. 3 timeframe.

Buck Pavilion Driveway

Construction work on the Buck Pavilion driveway has been rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 27, through Friday, Oct. 3. This project will widen the drop-off area for vehicles and also make it safer for pedestrians. The driveway will be closed to all vehicle traffic during the work.

During construction, pathways will be available for foot traffic only. All non-ambulatory patients arriving at Buck Pavilion by car will be diverted to other entrances with registration stations. (See map.)

What You Need to Know

  • During construction, patients and Virginia Mason team members arriving at Buck for drop off will be directed to the hospital entrance turnaround on Seneca Street (Central Pavilion Level 4). Patients seeking valet parking will be directed to the surgery entrance on Spring Street (Central Pavilion Level 6). Both entrances will have additional team members and registration stations to check patients in.
  • Discharged patients from the hospital and outpatient procedures should exit through the hospital at the Seneca turnaround (Central Pavilion Level 4).
  • The Baroness Hotel parking lot will be used for valet services during the construction period, so there will be fewer spaces available during the day. 

If you have any questions about the Buck driveway construction project or how traffic and pedestrian flow will be managed during the work, please contact Marcel Desranleau in Design, Construction and Property Management, (206) 341-0634.

Spring Street ClosureSpring Street Sidewalk Work Set Sept. 29 through Oct. 3

Following the City of Seattle’s recent sewer line repair on Spring Street, contractors will be finalizing work along the north sidewalk on the Virginia Mason campus between Terry and Ninth avenues. (See photo.) This work is currently scheduled to occur from Monday, Sept. 29, through Friday, Oct. 3, and will produce noise from a variety of trucks and equipment.

All work will be performed during weekday working hours, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be no weekend work associated with the project. In addition, the work will not disrupt traffic on Spring. However, the north sidewalk and parking along the north side of Spring will be closed during the work.

The Virginia Mason Hospital entrance at Spring and Terry will not be affected.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Melanie Petherick, project manager, (206) 999-8123.
