Traffic control starts today for Ballard Multimodal Corridor construction

Road work continues this week along NW Market St for the new trail construction, with traffic control starting today at the intersection of NW 54th St and 24th Ave NW.

For the past few weeks, crews have been on drainage work along the corridor, and have broken ground on concrete demolition of NW 54th St. They’ve also re-striped the parking lots at the Ballard Locks and Lockspot Cafe.

This week, crews will be reducing travel lanes on NW Market St between NW 54th and 24th Ave NW and remove parking in order to break up the concrete and start paving work along the north side of Market St.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction during demolition and paving, and there will be no parking permitted on the north or south side of Market between 30th and 24th Avenues NW. The restrictions will be in place through the fall.

Ah good! Excellent timing as usual by our DMV-level city managers.

Market street has been much quieter and more pleasant for walking since they started this work, TBH I wish they would just make the lane restrictions permanent.

To be honest I sort of agree, but NeoSeattle must be as packed as NYC yet still have pretensions of being “Green”.

So let me get this straight — you support reducing lanes for cars where you live because it’s pleasant? But the rest of the city needs to cram in as many cars as possible because it’s more convenient?

Oh, I’m not upset. And I’m not really sure what this has to do with curry. (Do you smell burnt toast?) I just enjoy pointing out hypocrisy when I see it.

I don’t get it. What’s wrong with a good curry?

C.H. Have you ever been to Mumbai?

C.H. Maybe if you did visit some of the other countries on this planet you might have a different perspective of life and you might not post such negative, opinionated posts. Just a thought, I don’t know you and maybe I am making a wrong assessment of you. However, for me, seeing firsthand how other people live, what they believe in and how they think makes me more accepting of other people.
As far as I can tell, no body has the “right” answer for the way we should be living. We are all learning and we have a long way to go.

I make an excellent curry. Onion, zucchini, heavy cream and chicken or shrimp.

I would kill to have good curry restaurants around Ballard! Make Ballard more like Bradford and Brick Lane!

Geeky Swedes why do you tolerate comments meant to demean others?

I’d say “racist” and “homophobic” comments. “Demean” is too soft a word for some of this BS.

I’ve asked SDOT to create temporary detours on streets like 56th Ave NW. Market St is a disaster due to this project. I’ve received a cold shoulder from SDOT. Does anyone else feel that SDOT is not taking appropriate measures to create alternate routes? Is there anything we could do as a community to pressure better action?

There are other modes of transportation such as biking or the bus. If less people drove there it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Be part of the solution!

have you been on street? absolute garbage for biking. I’ve tried. SDOT needs to create better solutions. I motorcycle or bike the majority of the time so yes I’m part of the solution

I agree that alternate routes should be encouraged and indicated with signage. I think other than a mass e-mail/letter campaign by the community that is unlikely to happen as the construction will only last a few more months. I believe the Market Street section is scheduled to be completed by October 2019.
