Alert 10/12: Bell Street closed between 5th and 6th Avenues for up to 3 weeks

Map of the full Bell Street project.Heads up! Work is underway to complete the Bell St bike lane and install new signals between 5th and 6th Avenues. This means the street will be closed 24/7 for up to three weeks, according to SDOT:

The Bell St Protected Bike Lane project will resume construction next Monday, 10/12. Our remaining work includes:

  • Install new traffic signals infrastructure at west corner of 6th Ave and Bell St
  • Construct ADA compliant curb ramps at all four corners of 6th Ave and Bell St
  • Install new low landscaping in curbed barrier between protected bike lane and parking lane, between 5th Ave and Denny Way

Please note that our work will require temporary full closure of Bell St between 5th Ave and 6th Ave to vehicular traffic (except for emergency vehicles) for up to 3 weeks, beginning next Monday, 10/12. The closure will be in place 24/7 until the signal installation is complete. Due to the restricted roadway space and nearby construction work, full closure of Bell St between 5th and 6th Ave is the only feasible option to safely install the new signal. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. During this closure, please expect delays when traveling in and around the area and follow signs for detour.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or by phone at 206-900-8760.

Thank you for your patience as we install right-of-way improvements in your neighborhood.
