Work may begin as soon as May 10 to change the layout of 34th Street between Stone Way and Fremont Ave. (See maps detailing closures and detours at the bottom of this article.) While not in Wallingford strictly speaking, neighbors may be affected even though the work will take place at night.

Starting as early as May 10, we will be changing the layout of the road along N 34th St from Fremont Ave N to Stone Way N. The work will take place overnight and will involve the removal of existing road markings and the placement of new ones. We will also install protected bike lanes. New traffic signals will be added at Troll Ave N and Stone Way N.
The work is expected to take 2 weeks and will require detours and temporary driveway closures. Parking will be impacted overnight. The work on the north side of N 34th St will be split into 2 phases. The work on the south side of N 34th St will be done in 1 phase.
During the work on the north side, people entering or leaving parking garages and driveways will only be able to do so by turning left. We will have flaggers at the intersection of Troll Ave N and N 34th St to guide people riding bikes through the detour.
During phase 1, N 34th St will be open to people driving eastbound. Westbound traffic will be detoured onto N 35th St.
Phase 2 will be similar to phase 1 except for people on bikes will now use the newly-installed bike lanes to move between Troll Ave N and Fremont Ave N
During phase 3, N 34th St will be open to westbound traffic. Eastbound traffic will be detoured onto N 35th St.
Typical construction hours are weeknights from Monday to Thursday from 7 PM until 7 AM.
Here’s what to expect during construction:
- Driveway access will be limited at times
- Noise, dust, debris, and vibration
- Construction staging and parking impacts near the work sites
- Roadway closures and detours for vehicle traffic
- Temporary no parking along north side of N 34th St
- Crosswalk and sidewalk closures, and detours for people walking and biking
All work is weather dependent.
