The walking, skating and biking path connecting Broad Street at Alaskan to Myrtle Edwards Park will close from Monday, October 2, through Friday, October 20. The closure will allow Seattle Art Museum project and construction teams to improve, and fully integrate the path into the forthcoming Olympic Sculpture Park, to provide a richer, more seamless thoroughfare along the city's northwestern edge.
The Olympic Sculpture Park will merge the Belltown/Uptown area with with over eight contiguous acres of free, landscaped, waterfront space, providing Seattle residents and visitors with vistas, and room to roam and relax. And it will be filled with world-class art.
A Seattle Department of Transportation map identifies downtown bike and pedestrian route options, although the site doesn't announce, or provide recommendations specific to, this temporary closure. There will be a one-day reopening of access on October 7th for the Seattle Hospitality Oncology Fun Run.
