Hauling dirt away

June 27, 2016
Burke Museum

Beginning this week, vehicles will haul away dirt from the New Burke construction site at night to avoid daytime traffic impacts. To ease potential impacts on the neighborhood, measures will be taken to reduce noise and all lighting will be pointed toward campus and away from nearby neighborhood buildings.  

Project officials expect the night work to last a few weeks. If you have a question, please contact Jeff Johnson, 206.391.9450.

Similar to the “inside-out” vision for the New Burke experience, we hope to provide a glimpse into the two-year construction of the New Burke Museum. Visit the New Burke Project page for answers to common questions about the project.
