Alki Car-Free Day countdown: “No parking” signs up


The city promised it would put up “No Parking” signs 72 hours in advance of this Sunday’s Car-Free Day on Alki – we just checked, and as that photo shows, they kept the promise. Alki SW is off-limits for parking from California Way to 63rd SW (map’s on the city-info page) 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday; it will be closed to traffic (except one lane for the Water Taxi shuttle bus, and some resident-access exceptions) noon-6 for the actual event. Next part of the notification plan that’s scheduled to kick in: Automated phone calls to area residents/businesses, which SDOT’s Rick Sheridan told us would start this afternoon. (Let us know if you get one!) 6:05 PM UPDATE: Just got word from SDOT that leaflets are being placed on cars. Will upload a copy of the leaflet soon as we can so you can see it.

    I will try and refrain from my “glass half-empty” mind-set about the Car Free Day at Alki experiment. I will walk to the beach on Sunday and check the scene out. As the only true “destination” location in the experiment it will be interesting to see if the visitors to Alki who don’t take mass transit got the memo about the “Cars are Evil” day (I only said I would try…). If it all works out, then I don’t mind admitting I was wrong.

Sorry, comment time is over.
