Work continues on upgrading the lighting on the Ballard Bridge. Today a northbound lane is closed until 2:30 p.m. while crews remove poles. There will likely be lane closures on Friday as well, to be announced later this week.
When the bridge opens for marine traffic at the same time a lane is closed, significant backups can occur. Drivers are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for their trips, or when possible take an alternate route.
The crews expect to complete work on the lighting upgrades by the first of October.
