City Proposes "Road Diet" For Admiral Way

By Erica C. Barnett July 6, 2010

Another planned road diet, this one on Nickerson between Ballard and Fremont, has been controversial; businesses in the Ballard industrial area claim it will hinder freight access to the new Alaskan Way deep-bore tunnel. However, a study of a similar road diet on Stone Way N. in Wallingford showed that it actually improved traffic and safety.
