Traffic in and out of Ballard could get a little hairy tomorrow, as light replacement work on the bridge and landscaping maintenance on 15th Ave W will close lanes in both directions. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) says the crews on the bridge will close the northbound, outside lane of the bridge today, Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to set utility poles. SDOT says they plan to perform the same work on the southbound side of the bridge on Thursday, Sept. 27. If needed, work will continue on Friday during the same hours, according to SDOT.
In addition to the bridge work, Urban Forestry crews from the SDOT will be doing landscaping maintenance in the median of 15thAvenue, from the bridge to just south of the West Dravus Street Overpass, tomorrow. They plan to close the inside, southbound lane on 15th Avenue West from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
