Construction wrapping up on NW Market St

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.

Just in time for the tents to move in.

not likely to happen, especially if you are proactive and don’t let it. Or you can just talk.

Well, we need someone to replace the mostly angry men wearing dirty clothes who don’t believe in wearing masks, that leave their stuff lying around everywhere and are constantly blocking traffic. You’ll hardly miss construction until next year!

“Mostly grumpy men” eh? Funny, all I see around are angry women. And why didn’t you put your big boy pants on and go up to each and every 1 of them to bitch about a mask? And just what will be the next virtue signal for people to climb onto? Hey look, it’s Jay Inslee’s hand, deep in YOUR right front pocket. And don’t worry about Durkanville and the course it’s on. Nothing to see here is there.

You just described Tim Eyman and his “haircut” protesters.

I agree. We need a balls shop, where people can go buy a set, then actually lead, or get out of the damn way.

Nice new real estate for tents and heroin trafficking. Can’t wait for that!

You say that for every new park or trail and your predictions never come true. I guess that what happens when you have such an “in tents” brain?

Funny!
There have been tents with open air drug markets at Ballard Commons, Leary triangle, Shilshole, southside of Market street west from Shilshole, Golden Gardens, steps up from GG, 22nd Ave, 24th Ave, Burke Gilman, sidewalks, Ballard library, 17th Ave by Market, 37th Place as it slopes down towards Golden Gardens, 14th Ave behind Safeway… those are just off the top of my head though. I’m sure there is more.
So why is there any expectation of there being no heroin tents on this new real estate?
Only a matter of time. Pattern and practice of enabling drug addiction will create this environment. And to be clear, enabling addicts to remain addicts is heartless.

If you are seeing “tents with open air drug markets” in all these very public places with tons of video surveillance, I would encourage you to speak to SPD, the DEA and/or the FBI who would be very interested. I would bring ample evidence because making false, sensationalist claims to the authorities can carry severe consequences. Note: I’m not saying that drug dealing doesn’t happen, only a fool would claim that a city with more than a dozen people in it has no drug dealing. It just doesn’t happen anywhere near the scale you have been constantly screaming for the past decade on this blog. There are places in the world that have open air drug markets. Seattle is not one of them and to claim so questions whether you have ever actually been to Seattle. But hey, feel free to put your photo or video evidence up on the internet for all to see! So why is there any expectation of there being no heroin tents on this new real estate?Only a matter of time. Well, you claimed this for Gemenskap Park. Still waiting for the first homeless person to set up camp there. And to be clear, enabling… Read more »

Counting down to the first serious injury or death because some bicycling fanatics insisted on mixing pedestrian and bike traffic. Walking on the BG trail with Tour de France sorts flying past, screaming for you to get out of _their_ way, is anything but relaxing.

And, looking forward to the massive traffic jams all through Ballard when the idiocy of reducing Market Street to two lanes is finally realized. Can’t wait for sunny days and half of Seattle trying to get to GG park through an intentionally restricted artery.

Maybe Mike O’Brien (remeber him?) can come out to direct traffic and soothe conflicts. This was his brainchild.

I bike or run the Burke on a daily basis and not only does your observation not match reality, it seems to match the delusional opinion of your typical MyNorthwest anti-bike commenter who has never been anywhere near the Burke-Gilman (nor Seattle for that matter).

Sorry your life is that terrible bro!

You can’t handle the truth.

BGT is in no way the TDF. Too many kids and dog walkers for a peloton. Haven’t you notice the guys who fly by on Seaview? The don’t ride BGT.

I’m looking forward to the Shilshole section getting completed so that we will have a safe Bike route to the office while we’re waiting for a vaccine.
