As part of Virginia Mason’s ongoing hospital building improvement efforts, there will be construction work on Saturday, March 10, that will affect pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and may cause noise at times.

A crane will be parked on Terry Avenue between Seneca and University streets (see photo below) to lift supplies onto roof areas of our hospital. During this work, the hospital entrance on Seneca will be closed. Entrances at Buck Pavilion (via 9th Avenue), Spring Street (Terry intersection) and the Emergency Department (Spring) will remain open. The sky bridge connecting the hospital to Lindeman Pavilion will have intermittent, 10-minute shutdowns, as well. The work is scheduled to last from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It should be noted that the Jones Pavilion corridor connection to the Central Pavilion will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, March 9, through midnight Saturday, March 10.

Virginia Mason volunteers and Security Services team members will be guiding pedestrians away from the construction areas. Seattle Police will be on site to assist with street traffic and closures, as necessary, during the work.

If inclement weather forces the activity to be postponed, it will be planned for the weekend of March 17 instead.

We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause, and we thank you for your patience. If you have any questions, please contact project manager Melanie Petherick, (206) 999-8123.
