If you’ve driven under the Aurora Bridge at any point since September, you know there’s been some construction going on down there. The re-wiring project, which is being overseen by Seattle City Light, extends between N. 34th Street and N. 35th Street on Woodland Park Ave. N. and between Stone Way N. and Troll Ave. N. (under the Aurora Bridge) on N. 34th Street.
Work on the project has been halted until January 3rd as the holiday season is here. However, that doesn’t mean things are at a complete standstill. Seattle City Light is holding two public meetings to discuss plans to change the Traffic Control Plan for the next round of work and they’d love to see folks from the Fremont Neighborhood there.
Some of the issues and proposed changes that are up for discussion include:
- Better signage, and electronic readers
- Additional flaggers & officers to control congestion points, including N. 34th Street & Fremont Avenue, and
- Troll Avenue & N. 34th Street & N. 35th Street
- Clearer direction for through truck detour to N. 46th Street
- Adjust signal timing to clear bridge opening traffic
- “No Park” on Troll Avenue to improve flow
Both meetings will cover the same topics, so you can attend either:
- Tuesday, December 21, 7:30-8:30am, at Adobe (801 N. 34th St.)
- Tuesday, December 28, 8:30-9:30am at History House (790 N. 34th St.).
The project is scheduled to be in effect until February. For current project information, visit: www.seattle.gov/light/aboutus/construction
