S. Lander Street to be closed for void remediation work

Sound Transit is continuing subsurface void remediation work near Beacon Hill Station, including drilling within the right of way on South Lander Street. For about a month, Lander will be closed between 17th and 18th Avenues South, with a one-block detour to either South Waite Street or South McClellan Street. There will be flaggers to assist drivers. The work will be done between 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday, and there will be heavy equipment and support vehicles operating in the area during these times. The street will remain closed overnight and potentially over weekends.

Drilling will also continue to take place on private properties on 17th (if you haven’t already been contacted by Sound Transit, your property isn’t included).

Jennifer Lemus of Sound Transit sent us this useful information for the folks who live on South Lander: “Normally the sanitation trucks travel east (down the hill) on S. Lander St. to pick up trash/recycle/yard waste. Our contractors will be happy to bring your trash cans up to 17th Ave S so there is ease in pick-up and less of a chance for a missed pick-up. Cans will also be returned to your property. We have communicated this to Waste Management as well.”

If you have any questions or concerns about the project, contact Jennifer Lemus, Sound Transit Community Outreach, at 206-398-5314 (work), 206-423-1407 (cell), or at Jennifer.Lemus@soundtransit.org.
