NE Pacific Street sidewalk & crosswalk closed through autumn

One of the three crosswalks from the Montlake Triangle across NE Pacific, will be closed starting in May and lasting through the end of autumn. The sidewalk in front of the hospital on the south side of NE Pacific Street will also be closed. This closure is necessary to complete work related to the UW Medical Center – Montlake Building Waterproofing and Entrance Upgrade project.  

During this time, pedestrian traffic will be rerouted across the street, using the two crosswalks at either end of the Montlake Triangle, as seen in the graphic above.  

Accessible Route: As the main route approaching the hospital  from the east crosswalk includes stairs, those requiring an accessible route without stairs, may enter through the Brotman Baty Surgery Pavilion between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. The route to the hospital from the west crosswalk does not require the use of stairs,  and is open at all times.
