Plans are underfoot to rehabilitate the Ballard Bridge, and there are two upcoming drop-in sessions for the public to talk to the project team.
While the Seattle Department of Transportation regularly performs maintenance and inspections of the bridge, it will likely need significant rehabilitation to sustain its current level of operation. The planning study is looking at ways to bring the bridge up to current standards, including improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities and ways to keep buses and freight moving.
SDOT will have two upcoming sessions — one on Thursday, Oct. 24 at Peddler Brewing (1514 NW Leary Way) and another on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at Fishermen’s Terminal in the Memorial Plaza (3919 18th Ave W). Both sessions will run from 6pm to 7:30pm.
“We’ll share information about the potential alternatives as well as details about constructibility, feasibility, cost, and connections to nearby destinations,” SDOT says.
