Repair coming this year for West Nickerson Street over 15th Avenue West

The north side of the structure over 15th Avenue West that supports West Nickerson Street has been damaged over the years by passing over-size vehicles. The structure is not in any danger, but the girder on the north side of the supporting structure will be replaced by the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) late this year.

The girder replacement will require the westbound lane of West Nickerson Street to be closed for approximately 10-12 weeks. The eastbound vehicular lane will generally remain open to traffic as will the sidewalk on the south side of this overpass (for bicyclists and pedestrians). Traffic on 15th Avenue West below the overpass will remain open although there may be occasional periods of lane restrictions required during off-peak hours in either or both directions. There will, however, be two overnight instances when all traffic on both this West Nickerson Street overpass and 15th Avenue West below will be closed for all traffic. Advance notice of all construction activity will be provided once fabrication and delivery schedules are firmed up.

If you have specific questions about the project or would like to be placed on an email list to receive information about the planned construction activity directly in the future please email or call SDOT’s Communication Lead Art Brochet at or 206-615-0786.

Fishermen's Terminal 25-Year Plan Updates

Stakeholder outreach activities are ongoing for the Fishermen's Terminal 25-year plan. When finished, the plan will address the adequacy of the upland buildings and yards as well as opportunities to improve them.

At the outset the planning process staff held a customer open house and conducted a series of interviews with fishing moorage tenants. This led to an initial assessment of customer needs. The finalized version of the report has been posted to the project website

Throughout the study there will be opportunities to get involved. The project website provided above allows you to submit an email address in order to receive project updates and reminders of meetings. You may also contact project manager Joseph Gellings at (206) 787-3368 or at
