In partnership with King County Metro, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is installing a number of transit improvements along Metro Route 44, which connects Ballard, Wallingford and the University District. The project will provide a number of benefits designed to improve transit time and enhance the transportation experience.
The project is divided into 23 different locations along NW Market St, N 46th St and N 45th St. These sites will be worked in groups of 2 or 3 at a time, to minimize construction impacts and best coordinate the construction with other area projects and special events.
What to Expect During Construction
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in some work zones during construction. During significant construction activities, such as grinding and final paving, portions of the roadway will be closed and traffic will be detoured.
On-street parking will be temporarily removed and loading restrictions may be in place. Advanced notice will be provided.
Appropriate signage will be used to guide bicyclists and/or pedestrians around the work zone.
Other restrictions may include:
- Lane closures
- Traffic slowdowns
- Pedestrian detours
- Temporary parking removal
- Loading restrictions
- Construction noise and dust
- Work during weekdays, with potential for weekend and night work
- Traffic detours
- Regular notices with more schedule and location specific information during construction
Construction is anticipated began in April 2012. The project is expected to be substantially complete by fall 2012.
