(WSDOT’s “South Portal Design Concept” showing where the new Hwy. 99 south-end would meet the tunnel)
The South Portal Working Group, an advisory panel working with the state/city/county/port on how Highway 99 and what’s around it will flow toward West Seattle (and beyond), was offered the chance to stop meeting till fall – but its members, including West Seattle reps, said they thought there were too many important issues to discuss. So, they’re meeting again this month, and the date has just been announced: 4 pm July 28, board room at Union Station (401 S. Jackson). These meetings are open to the public. And if you have viaduct-related questions in the meantime, do note that WSDOT has a booth at West Seattle Summer Fest this weekend (#26; here’s the map).
