Two-way traffic restored by Ballard Locks

After a year of construction, NW 54th St and NW Locks Place have been restored to two-way traffic as Phase 1 of the Ballard Multimodal Corridor wraps up.

The stretch of road has been one-way since last spring—it was closed to allow crews to make roadway and pedestrian upgrades. Now, SDOT says crews have completed the majority of work along that section, allowing them to reopen it to two-way traffic.

The Lockspot Cafe has a brand new paved area in front of their restaurant, which was completed over the weekend.

As the below map shows, NW Market St between 30th Ave NW and 32nd Ave NW will remain one-way westbound.

SDOT says Phase 1 of the Ballard Multimodal Corridor project is nearing completion, with upgrades to sidewalks, intersections, lighting, and electrical work along the stretch just west of 24th Ave NW. The remaining work includes planting vegetation and site restoration.
