Expect some lane restrictions and traffic delays Saturday, September 8
From 7 am to 6 pm on Saturday, September 8, crews will install new traffic signal mast arms on NW Market Street at the intersections of 14th Avenue NW and 24th Avenue NW. During this work the existing traffic signals for each intersection will be deactivated. While the traffic signals are deactivated, uniformed police officers will be onsite to direct and safely move vehicles, bicyclist and pedestrians through the intersections.
Drivers should expect one lane of travel in each direction leading up to and through the work zone on Saturday. On-street parking and loading restrictions in and around active work areas will also be in place.
This work is part of a larger Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) project that will help move people more quickly and reliably through one of Seattle’s busiest east/west corridors and will benefit one of Seattle’s most heavily utilized bus routes, Route 44, which provides connections among the Ballard, Wallingford and University areas.
This work is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in 2006.
