Driving through Ballard will get a bit tricky starting Monday, with closures coming to the intersection of 24th Ave NW and NW Market St starting on Sept. 16th.
As part of the Ballard Multimodal Corridor project, crews will start by closing the north half of the intersection on Monday in order to replace an aging water main and finish paving work.
Things will get really interesting the following weekend when the entire intersection will close from 3am Saturday, Sept. 21st until 5am on Monday, Sept. 23rd. The work is weather dependent, and will be postponed in case there’s a forecast of rain.
Here are the traffic revisions during the weekday closure (here’s the .pdf):
And, here are the detours for the full closure on the weekend (.pdf):
Crews plan to work nonstop through the weekend closure, demolishing and replacing concrete panels at the intersection.
Local access will be maintained during the work, and businesses will remain open.
For the rest of this week, crews will continue working on the center lane of NW Market St west of 24th. Paving and concrete pouring are scheduled for this week — SDOT expects center-lane work to wrap up in just over two weeks, depending on weather.
