New bottleneck starts tonight near Seattle’s Mercer Street

Cars and bikes will have to merge together this week on southbound Dexter Avenue North, which is being narrowed to just one lane starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday, until Friday morning, for a sewer project.

Work will take place between Roy and Mercer streets in the booming South Lake Union area. The Seattle Department of Transportation advises drivers to “plan ahead and expect traffic delays.”

Already, right turns from Dexter onto Mercer are banned because they could endanger bicyclists who continue straight on Dexter, toward downtown. And heavy car traffic can make left turns onto Mercer difficult.

More information from the city is posted here. Seattle is building a two-way underpass below Aurora Avenue North, in a long-term project to reconstruct Mercer Street.
