The contractor for the Ballard Bascule Bridge Painting project tentatively plans to start the week of November 14, after being on hold for several months. The contractor will work alternately on each side of the bridge for up to six weeks at a time until the project is completed.
Beginning along the east side of the bridge, the contractor will close the east sidewalk and one northbound lane of traffic every day for up to six weeks.
The contractor will close the west sidewalk and one southbound lane of traffic every day for up to six weeks when work moves to the west side of the bridge. However, painting work will not happen on both sides of the bridge at the same time.
