The Seattle Department of Transportation will pilot another Pike People Street this week, in conjunction with the Capitol Hill Art Walk.
Following a mixed reception to late-night closures of East Pike in August, to encourage activity and promote pedestrian safety, the city revised the pilot this year.
Two Pike People Street test dates were cancelled in October due to inclement weather. SDOT rescheduled one to take place during the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce’s Hilloween.
Responding to community feedback to test a Pike People Street during the weekly art walk, SDOT will close one lane of East Pike, from 10th to 11th avenues, 4-10 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8.
One-way motorized travel will be allowed in the southbound lane of 11th Avenue, with right turns allowed onto East Pike.
SDOT will provide tables, chairs, games, tents, lighting and barricade decoration during the event.
In order to continue improving the Pike People Street model, SDOT is asking the public to participate in an online survey through Thursday, Dec. 15.
