Sound Transit is set to break ground on the First Hill Streetcar April 23. The ceremony — which begins at 12:15 p.m. at the corner of Broadway and Boylston — kicks off two years of construction along the $134 million streetcar line.
It could prove to be a pretty rough couple years for people biking around the streetcar line. For example, the tracks on Broadway will be installed a year before the cycle track is completed. While the official construction detours suggest using 12th Ave, Broadway is packed with destinations, and many people will certainly keep using it during construction.
