AACE Seattle Section November 13th, 2014 Meeting

Seattle, WA

For more than 40 years, the Mercer Corridor has been one of the City's most significant transportation challenges. Some 80,000 vehicles at the I-5 interchange, along with growing numbers of pedestrians and bicyclists, travel the Mercer Corridor between Elliott Ave. W and I-5 each day, making it a critical east/west route for keeping people, goods, and services moving.
In early 2010, SDOT began the first phase of construction between I-5 and Dexter Ave. N and Mercer St. opened to two-way traffic between I-5 and 9th Ave. N in August 2012. Since then, construction has continued on nearby Fairview Ave. N and Valley St. The first phase will be completed in fall, 2013.
The next phase of construction, between Dexter Ave. N and 5th Ave. W, began in early spring 2013 and is anticipated to be complete by mid-2015. When complete, the Mercer Corridor will carry two-way traffic between I-5 5th Ave. W and connect Seattle neighborhoods to the north portal of the SR 99 Tunnel.
A two-way Mercer Corridor improves mobility for all modes of transportation:
Creates an efficient and direct east/west transportation corridor between I-5, SR 99 and 5th Ave.
Reduces conflicts between cars, trucks, pedestrians and bicyclists
Improves pedestrian and bicycle safety and access
Strengthens connections among area neighborhoods
Improves access to and from Seattle Center
Accommodates and encourages future transit investments
