A Message from the Fairview Bridge Project Team
We would like to provide an update to our recent message about Aloha St detour preparation work: The Aloha St closure will begin in the morning on Friday, July 26. As a reminder, during the Aloha St detour preparation work, portions of Aloha St will be closed to through traffic for approximately 10-15 business days at a time. Travelers should find alternate routes. The work along Aloha St is expected to last approximately 2 months and is necessary to prepare for the Fairview Ave N Bridge construction and closure, which will begin this fall. You can learn more about the project work and schedule on our project webpage.  The project team will provide regular updates via email and the project webpage throughout construction. If you have any questions, please contact us at

On Sunday, September 15, 2019, the George Pocock Rowing Foundation is staging the Seattle Row for the Cure® regatta in Lake Union and Ship Canal from 6:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. This regatta benefits the Puget Sound Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and supports their mission of eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. This year we expect approximately 800 participants are launching from the Pocock Rowing Center, Lake Washington Rowing Center, Seattle Pacific University, College Club, and University of Washington Rowing Center. Our start line is in the Ship Canal east of the Seattle Pacific University dock. The regatta will consist of three flights: The first two are going to end at College Club of Seattle, dock at 11 E. Allison St. and the third flight, a shorter 1K sprint, ending at Gas Works Park. Crews will be launching boats starting at 6:30 a.m. Coaches and crews will be reminded to be as quiet as possible during this time. A megaphone will be in use from 7:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. for official communication use and at the starting line. In addition to the regatta, Row for the Cure will be hosting coaches and coxswains meeting at Gas Works Park at 6:00 a.m. for about 15 minutes. We are going to have a spectator area at the park from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm and a celebration from 11 am to 1 pm where we expect approximately 200 people. Thank you for your patience and understanding during our fundraising effort. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at or at the Pocock Rowing Center at (206) 328-0778.
