Closure of Nickerson/Emerson on-ramps to northbound 15th Avenue West and Ballard Bridge

SEATTLE-SDOT will be closing the northbound on-ramps from the Nickerson/Emerson interchange to the Ballard Bridge from July 7th to July 19th as part of the Elliott/15th Avenue West paving project. The ramps will be closed 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week.

A detour route will be posted. Detoured traffic will use the southbound ramps to 15th Avenue West, drive south on 15th to West Dravus Street, and at Dravus Street will turn around and head northbound on 15th Avenue West.

Drivers should expect delays when traveling westbound on West Nickerson Street and eastbound on West Emerson Place, as well as on 15th Avenue West north of the West Dravus Street interchange.
