The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making improvements to the transit system in Wallingford designed to improve the speed, reliability and efficiency of transit. From 7 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 19th, crews will be working to remove a large tree and install two new permanent poles in sections along North 45th Street/Midvale Place/North 46th Street between Green Lake Way North and Stone Way North.
During the majority of the work the roadway will be reduced to one lane in each direction. While the tree is being removed, the roadway may be reduced to a single lane for both directions, alternating traffic with the assistance of flaggers. On-street parking restrictions and loading restrictions in and around active work areas will also be in place.
These Priority Bus Corridor Projects benefit one of Seattle’s most heavily utilized bus routes, Route 44, which provides connections between the Ballard Locks and the University District.
Weather permitting, work on the N.W. Market Street/N. 45th Street transit improvements is expected to be complete in late summer 2012.
This work is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in 2006.
