Seattle (September 12, 2022) – The City’s Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects has awarded a construction contract to Gary Merlino Construction for $17.45M to build improvements to the streetscape that will improve the walking and rolling experience on Pike and Pine streets, between 1st and Bellevue Avenues. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2023 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
“Safety and accessibility are an essential part of our program, and we are excited to get started on construction of these improvements to Pike and Pine streets,” said Angela Brady, Director of the Waterfront Seattle Program. “Reaching this milestone means we are another step closer to creating spaces in our city’s downtown for all to enjoy.”
Pike Pine Streetscape and Bicycle Improvements (a part of the Downtown Seattle Association’s Pike Pine Renaissance program) includes improvements to crosswalks and sidewalks, more greenery, protected bike lanes, and new seating,
