Seattle Arena Construction Updates



Fencing – Temporary chainlink fence around the Seattle Center Arena site has been adjusted to allow access between the NE corner of the Arena and A/NT Gallery.  This access will remain until the sound barrier is installed. Once the sound barrier is fully installed, access to the NW Courtyard will be from Republican Street and 2nd Ave. N only.

The sound barrier continues to be fabricated in the NASA building and installation of sections will start on the North side of the project on or before Dec. 1.  As sections of the sound barrier are completed, they will be installed.  Overnight demolition will not begin before the sound barrier is in place. 

Utility Work – Utility work connected to the Seattle Center Arena project is continuing.  The work on Republican Street/August Wilson Way is in progress and on time.  The work on John Street and Thomas Street is complete. 

Blue Spruce – Work on the Blue Spruce building is continuing on schedule. 

Landscaping – Trees to remain or be removed as part of the project have been identified via two-week notification by Seattle City Urban Forestry staff.  All trees removed as part of the project will be replaced two-to-one.
