This summer, Seattle Department of Transportation crews will paint one half of the Ballard Bridge, affecting pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
Rick Sheridan with SDOT tells us that pedestrian access on either the east or west side of the bridge will be shut down entirely during the painting. The other side of the bridge will remain open. No word on when painting will start or which side of the bridge crews will work on first. The side that isn’t painted this year will be painted next year.
