The construction on the west end of NW Market St is coming to an end in the next few weeks, as crews finish a substantial portion of the work to improve the roadway and sidewalks.
The Ballard Multimodal Corridor project, which began in early 2019, is the first phase of the city’s plan to fix the aging arterial and connect the Missing Link of the Burke-Gilman Trail.
Last week, crews finished striping and channelization work on NW 54th St, NW Locks Pl, and NW Market St. SDOT also wrapped up ADA ramp, curb, sidewalk, electrical and utility work at the intersections of 24th and 28th Avenues NW and NW Market St, and sidewalk patching on the north side of NW Market St.
In the next few weeks, crews will be out repairing or replacing concrete panels that have cracked on Market St between 24th and 28th.
While SDOT has paused or postponed several transportation projects around the city, work will continue to wrap up this phase of the Ballard Multimodal Corridor project. The next phase was meant to be the Shilshole trail construction, but those plans are on pause as the Missing Link debacle continues.
