Increased Construction Activity At Children's Hospital This Month

Children's Hospital has detailed various construction activities taking place this month in their Construction Blog:

This month, multiple projects are taking place at Seattle Children’s as we continue to expand and improve our facilities. As a result, you will see an increase in construction activity around the hospital campus.
The projects include relocation of our ophthalmology clinic located on the southeast portion of our campus, construction of an exterior porch and patio in conjunction with the new Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit,  and build out on three floors in the Forest zone. 
With these projects, we expect higher truck traffic on NE 45th Street and an increase in deliveries on our service roads, particularly the drive that runs from the bus layover space along the south side of our ambulatory care, parallel to NE 45th Street.  
There will also be one day of crane activity, specific date not established yet, in the southwest portion of our campus. This week we are making repairs to an exterior wall along the southeast side of our campus. This water proofing work will be completed today.  
Additionally, you might hear roto hammering and drilling that will occasionally operate. The roto-hammering will take place this week - 60 to 80 holes will be drilled and they take 30 seconds each.  
There will also be a concrete truck delivery sometime this week, day and time not established yet. 
All of this work will occur during normal business hours. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions please contact the construction pager line at 206-469-5860. We greatly appreciate your patience as we continue to make improvements at Seattle Children’s.
