Here’s what the Harbor Avenue no-parking signs were about – today is the second of three days of landscape work on the median, according to SDOT:

You may have seen crews at work along Harbor Avenue Southwest between Southwest Spokane Street and Southwest Florida Street. These Seattle Department of Transportation landscape crews began working on the street median yesterday, weeding and cutting back plant material. They will continue the work through tomorrow, keeping one lane open in each direction by shifting traffic into the parking lanes. The northbound lane is closed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closure of the southbound lane is delayed until 9 a.m. to allow for morning commuter traffic.

  1. About time! I thought it was being used as an experiment to see how milkweed, morning glories and blackberries tolerate exhaust fumes.

  3. Dear SDOT,

    I have tried many times reporting this via the Find-It-Fix-It app to no success. Please clean up the sketchy weed-farm cigarette ash-tray median where the West Seattle Bridge connects to 35th & Fauntleroy. As you drive up from the bridge to hit the 35th/Fauntleroy signal and stop to turn left/south onto 35th, the median looks like it belongs in unincorporated edges of Detroit.

    This place is in the middle of fast traffic so its something I can’t just go fix as a citizen. Please fix.

    Thanks!
