The work is set to begin on September 6th and continue into late November and no power outages are expected. At a later date, SDOT will repave the alley with a Pioneer Square Preservation Board-approved brick pattern. Access to the alley will be limited and one side of the alley may be partially blocked or closed during construction, but full business access will be maintained during weekdays.
