MAX Purple Construction Update
Crews are getting ready to start work on the last pieces of construction for the MAX Purple line in the coming weeks.

19 Street and 17 Avenue S.E.

  • Starting mid-April until early June, crews will be doing road and concrete work in the southeast corner of the intersection, and the median of the westbound to southbound left hand turn lane.
  • For the work in the median, the leftmost left hand turn lane will be closed during non-peak hours so crews can complete this work.
  • Pedestrian detours will be in place while crews complete this work, and access to the north side of 17 Avenue S.E. will be from the west side of 19 Street S.E. You can see the full pedestrian detour here <http://trk.cp20.com/click/cgmk-10fchf-j59hm7-6brcn1s3/> .
