Traffic leaving Ballard is being diverted at 3rd Ave.
There’s also another bus, the 44, parked in the road at Market and 3rd. Drivers are being allowed to drive down the hill into Ballard, but conditions are very slick. Leary and 85th are your alternative eastbound routes.
Given the new snow and still terrible conditions on residential streets, garbage pickup is canceled today as well.
