2 traffic alerts: ‘Low bridge’ inspection; SW Genesee paving

First, just in from Peg Nielsen at SDOT:

Tomorrow, Thursday, June 10, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., SDOT will be conducting a maintenance inspection on the SW Spokane Street Bridge in the eastbound pedestrian and bike lane. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be flagged around the equipment involved in the work activities. Bicyclists will be asked to dismount through the work zone.

Second – Heidi on Genesee Hill e-mailed to ask about what appeared to be an unannounced paving project in the works. We checked with SDOT, whose Marybeth Turner replied:

DOT crews are paving SW Genesee from 47th to 49th. It wasn’t on the lists because it was not certain that there would be funds for it this year. When it became apparent that there would be sufficient funds, they started the job. The plan is to pave on Friday or Monday. One lane will remain open in each direction.

    I live a couple houses from the Genesee paving project and today it was freaking loud! Scraping concrete and such for hours. Be glad when it’s done!

    I’ll take the noise if it means they city would finally notice the pothole central stretch of Calif Ave!

    Drivers of semi tractor trailers delivering containers to Harbor Island will be asked to get out and push their trucks around the work zone…

Sorry, comment time is over.
