Traffic/trail alert: SDOT landscaping work under the bridge

June 10, 2014 at 10:18 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 3 Comments

Just in from SDOT:

Crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will work today through Thursday on seasonal maintenance of landscaping under the Southwest Spokane Street Bridge (the lower, swing bridge to West Seattle) along the bike trail. Bicyclists will be required to dismount and walk through areas where the crews are working.

Tomorrow, June 11, crews plan to close one lane on Klickitat Avenue Southwest which provides access to Harbor Island. The closure will allow landscape crews to work safely in roadway medians.

  1. So.. What are they doing exactly? That work was already done by citizen volunteers. Sounds like a fraudulent paycheck on the taxpayers dime to me.

  2. If you read carefully, it’s not the same area. Spokane St. under the bridge. The work done by volunteers last weekend was immediately east of Avalon; this is nowhere near that.
