Weeks of sidewalk construction on Montlake Blvd beginning March 2
The West Approach Bridge North (WABN) project will bring changes in traffic flow to the Montlake Boulevard intersection. In preparation for this, crews will be improving the pedestrian experience with a series of sidewalk-enhancement projects over the next couple months. This work will primarily affect pedestrians and transit riders in the area.
The first of three phases of sidewalk-improvement projects will begin as soon as Monday, March 2. During this time certain sections of sidewalk at or north of the Montlake Boulevard / East Lake Washington Boulevard intersection will be closed. Please visit our website for more information.
Transit riders disembarking at the Montlake freeway stops should prepare for a little extra walking, as they may have to cross Montlake Boulevard in order to walk north. See the detour map for an illustration of how to avoid the construction.
