The Seattle Department of Transportation has restricted travelers from making right turns from southbound Dexter Avenue North onto westbound Mercer Street, effective today (Tuesday July 29).

The change is being implemented to ensure cyclists traveling through the intersection are not at risk due to right-turning vehicles.

Travelers heading south on Dexter Avenue North who want to go westbound on Mercer Street may use eastbound Roy Street and southbound Ninth Avenue North to reach westbound Mercer Street.
