Address: 211 First Avenue S, Seattle 98104
Program: MP 31 – Mitigation and Historic Properties
Milepost 31 is an award-winning information center that highlights the people and projects that shaped Pioneer Square, and provides an inside look at the SR 99 Tunnel Project. You’ll find history, artifacts and interactive exhibits designed to broaden your understanding of the land beneath you. You’ll explore the neighborhood’s changing landscape, from native civilizations, to Seattle’s first neighborhood, to the city’s earth-moving efforts of the past and the massive tunnel project that will soon move State Route 99 underground and reconnect Pioneer Square to the waterfront. This program is being co-hosted by the King County Historic Preservation Program.
