Sidewalk repair gets underway in Old Ballard

SDOT crews begin work on a sidewalk repair project along Ballard Ave. this Monday morning that’s expected to last four to five weeks. You may have seen the white paint marking the construction areas.

Crews will begin work at Ballard Ave. and 20th St., ultimately covering most of the stretch along the east side of the Ave. in Old Ballard. It’s the last phase of a three-year project to “make the walking experience safe and smooth.”

As you’ve probably noticed, some of the trees have pushed the sidewalk up in places. Repairs will include expanding the tree pits as well as replacing existing sidewalk sections with exposed aggregate sidewalk. SDOT says you can expect some pedestrian detours, parking restrictions as well as “moderate to high construction noise and dust” from time to time. More information right here.
