Market St paving and detours to continue through August

The paving on the north side of NW Market St will continue throughout the month, with revised pedestrian and vehicle detours in place.

This week, crews are paving the north half of the intersection at 28th Ave NW and NW Market St, which will require lane restrictions and the closure of the north half of the intersection through Thursday, August 15th.

During this work, vehicles accessing 28th Ave NW between NW Market Street and NW 56th St should follow the detour along NW 56th St between 30th Ave NW and 24th Ave NW (see map below).

Next week, King County Metro will be installing new transit poles on Market St, east of 24th Ave NW.

Later this month, crews will begin paving the north half of the intersection at 24th Ave NW and NW Market St. The north half of the intersection will be closed for about two weeks to do the work — we’ll update with detours and traffic changes when the information becomes available.

Work hours will continue to be Monday through Saturday, 7am to 10pm, with some work happening nights and weekends to minimize impacts during commute times.

Many Ballard residents agree, the Burke Gilman trail should be on “not” 54th and South Shilshole. Market street was a compromise with disingenuous businesses owners.

FYI, BGT is a multi-use trail and not a bike path. It’s used by joggers, walkers, skaters, skateboarders, wheelchair bound people and cyclists. Users come from all walks of life.

The 2012 appeal (“Ballard Business Appellants”) included: Salmon Bay Sand & Gravel Co. Ballard Chamber of Commerce Ballard Interbay Northend Manufacturing & Industrial Center North Seattle Industrial Association Ballard Oil Company Seattle Marine Business Coalition The 2017 appeal (“Ballard Coalition”) includes: The Martin Luther King, Jr. County Labor Council of Washington The Teamsters Salmon Bay Sand & Gravel Co. Ballard Interbay Northend Manufacturing & Industrial Center North Seattle Industrial Association Ballard Terminal Railroad, LLC CSR Marine Seattle Marine Business Coalition Disingenuous because they’ve wasted millions of taxpayer money to prevent a much needed and almost unanimously supported trail from being constructed on public ROW by abusing environmental processes. A trail that has been effectively shovel ready for decades. Disingenuous because they are lying that the trail will cost them profits and jobs (easily refuted by similar, well functioning, business along other portions of the BGT) when really it’s because they don’t want to lose their taxpayer subsidized parking in the heart of one of the densest neighborhoods in Seattle. Disingenuous because they pretended to compromise with Seattle in 2017 by agreeing to drop their challenge if Seattle moved the trail from 54th to Market. The City did such, yet the… Read more »

“much needed and almost unanimously supported trail ” Much needed? Really a 2 mile bike trail is MUCH NEEDED. Like affordable housing, fixing the roads, trying to “improve” the impact from the homeless on our neighborhood, Really. Much needed. As to “unanimous” support you sure sighted a lot of reputable organizations who oppose it. “by abusing environmental processes.”
actually it was the city that abused the process…”Burke-Gilman link halted by judge
SEATTLE (AP) — A judge has blocked Seattle’s plan to complete the last link of a bike trail by ruling the city’s environmental analysis doesn’t fully account for economic impacts of the path.”

The Seattle Times reports that King County Superior Court Judge Samuel Chung in the ruling Thursday sent the plan back to the city.

No you’re blowing smoke, purely BS. Some fat cats that belong to a bike club want this, thats all.

The trail is much needed. Affordable housing is much needed. Fixing our roads and infrastructure is much needed.

We are an advanced species and society, we are capable of accomplishing more than one thing at once. The Missing Link has been delayed for decades, it’s overdue.

Thanks for trying though.

As to “unanimous” support you sure sighted a lot of reputable organizations who oppose it.

I understand reading and comprehension are not your strengths, but I’ll point you to the part in my comment where I said almost unanimously supported trail.

Nice to get new pavement but that sure seems like over-engineered pavement…a foot thick deck of reinforced concrete! Now can anyone tell me how that Spirit gas station stays in business when it consistently charges a buck more per gallon than any other station?
