SDOT Meeting on Jan. 17th – Ballard Bridge, 15th Ave W. & NW Safety & Paving Project

The Magnolia Chamber of Commerce is holding an information meeting on the 15th Ave NW & W and Ballard Bridge Safety and Paving project (the project) with the Seattle Department of Transportation on Wednesday, January 17, from 6 to 7 pm at the Episcopal Church of Ascension, located at 2230 Viewmont Way W.

The event is in response to several Chamber members wanting to know more about the project, which is slated to begin in early 2024. The meeting will provide an opportunity for SDOT to explain the project that will create traffic challenges at different times for those entering 15th Ave W., primarily from the Emerson Street and Dravus Street bridges. Attendees will be able to ask questions from SDOT officials and seek a better understanding of traffic management in anticipation of lane closures, varying construction hours, and how SDOT plans to manage traffic in and out of Magnolia, primarily for those traveling on 15th Ave W & NW in and out of Magnolia.

The project is part of the Levy to Move Seattle, passed by voters in 2015. The project will be one of the last projects funded by the nine-year levy, which is set to expire this year. The project aims to restore the road condition of a critical piece of Seattle’s transportation network, extend the useful life of one of Seattle’s busiest streets and bridges, and contribute to a safer and more comfortable travel experience for all road users.

Please RSVP to Jason Thibeaux, Executive Director, at if you will attend the January 17th information meeting. For more information, contact Jason at 206.618.1589.
