Campus Update: Emergency Department Vehicle Entrance Reroute June 28
To allow for a major delivery to Virginia Mason’s Jones Pavilion construction project, the Emergency Department (ED) vehicle entrance on Spring Street will close for approximately 14 hours on Saturday, June 28, beginning at 6 a.m. During this time, incoming ambulance traffic will enter the adjacent exit drive on Spring Street, and exit as usual onto Boren Avenue.
Valet attendants, stationed on Spring, will assist passenger vehicles while a concierge directs pedestrians to safely access the ED. Flaggers, positioned on Spring, will direct passing traffic. The City of Seattle has granted a noise ordinance exception to facilitate the project’s early start and timely completion.
Partial closure of Spring June 28, July 1
Please note that Spring will be closed to all traffic between Boren and Terry Avenue during the work to ensure the safety of crews, motorists and pedestrians. Emergency vehicles will access the ED via Madison Street and 9th Avenue to Terry. A similar closure on Spring will occur Tuesday, July 1, between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., to accommodate a large concrete pour in Jones Pavilion.
On behalf of the Virginia Mason team, we apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your continued patience as we complete interior construction in the Jones Pavilion. Please direct any questions or concerns to Kim Szegiet, senior project manager, (206) 341-0434, email@example.com.
