binary pascal-ish triangle

Every row in this triangle is a power of 3 in binary


In the second column from the left, 1010100..., there are no consecutive 1s. I want to know what the ratio of 0s to 1s converges to, if it converges.

On the right side of the triangle, there are the patterns 1111..., then 101010..., then 1000... which are  powers of 3 modulo powers of 2. Is there any quicker way to find the nth pattern than modular arithmetic?
