Market Street paving update

Work continues this week for the Ballard Multimodal Corridor project, with crews paving the south side of Market Street.

Today (Monday), traffic will be reduced to one-way northbound from NW Market St at the 28th Ave NW and NW Market intersection to allow crews to install a conduit crossing. Two-way traffic will be restored on Tuesday, October 22.

Also today, flaggers will be on site to direct traffic at NW Market St between 28th Ave NW and 26th Ave NW. Traffic flow will alternate between one lane in each direction as crews complete work on the east side of the road.

This week, crews will be paving the east half of the 28th Ave and Market intersection. The Metro eastbound bus stop was relocated to the southwest corner of the intersection last week — expect the relocation to be in place for about two weeks.

Crews will also continue to excavate pole foundations on the north side of Market St, with concrete pouring scheduled for next week.

Work will extend down to NW 54th St this week as well, with conduit trenching, and curb and sidewalk paving. SDOT say the sidewalk work will cause an increase in pedestrian impacts — they’ll have sidewalk detours in place.
