Ballard Ave. sidewalk repair nearly complete

If you stopped by the Ballard Farmers Market on Sunday, you may have noticed new sections of sidewalk along the east side of Ballard Ave.

While there are a few patches still under construction, SDOT says the concrete repair work should be done by this week, weather willing. We spoke to a few businesses along the construction zone, and they told us they’re happy the project is nearly complete. Some said they believed the construction — which closed sidewalks and reduced parking — was bad for business. The final phase will be sandblasting the finished sidewalk to “achieve the architectural finish required by the Ballard Landmarks District,” explains SDOT.
