The City of Seattle is constructing the new First Hill Streetcar Line. This line will cover 2.5 miles and serve Capitol Hill, First Hill, Yesler Terrace, Central Area, International District and Pioneer Square; improving connections and access to businesses, medical centers and schools. The First Hill Line will have 10 stations, 6 streetcars, and connect with bus lines, Link light rail, commuter rail, ferry and water taxi, and the local bike network.
The First Hill Line is the next step in the Seattle Streetcar project after the successful opening of the South Lake Union Line in 2007. Our goal is to keep you informed on how the construction may impact your travel to and from the First Hill and Cherry Hill campuses. We will keep this blog post updated throughout the project and let you know of any planned traffic detours or lane closures, until the opening of the line in mid-2014.
Here are some useful links to learn more about the First Hill Streetcar Project:
