Beginning Monday, August 6, the east sidewalk and northbound curbside lane on the Ballard Bridge will be closed between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. for work on bridge lights. On Thursday or Friday (August 9 or 10) this daytime weekday closure will switch sides, to the southbound curbside lane (but neither sidewalk).
The Ballard Bridge will be closed between 11 p.m. Saturday August 11 and 7 a.m. on Sunday August 12th. During the closure, all four vehicle lanes and one sidewalk will be closed to traffic. The other sidewalk will remain available for use, and the bridge will operate normally to permit boat traffic underneath.
