Construction to connect part of the Burke-Gilman Trail is continuing this week, which will create some traffic detours and parking restrictions along NW Market St.
The project, known as the Ballard Multimodal Corridor, will begin with developing trail infrastructure on Market St between the Locks and 24th Ave NW.
The majority of the current work is happening on the west end of Market St between 30th and 32nd. To protect crews working along the roadway, Market St will be reduced to one-way traffic (westbound) between 30th and 32nd Ave NW. Traffic on 54th will also be one-way (eastbound) between 30th and 32nd. The map below shows the detours:
Sidewalks will remain open during the detours, and bicycles will be allowed to travel through the detours.
Parking will also be reduced during construction — click here for a map of designated alternatives.
In addition to the detours, tree trimming and removal will start later this month. In the coming months, they’ll start construction on the roadway, drainage systems, and pedestrian improvements, including building curb ramps and repairing sidewalks.
To learn more about the project as a whole, you can attend a community open house at the Nordic Museum tomorrow (May 7) from 6:30pm to 8pm. SDOT will set up display boards about the project and have staff on hand to answer questions.
