South Park notes: TIGER II today; sale tomorrow; leaves next week

Three South Park notes tonight, 2 related to the closure of its old bridge almost two months ago: First, the official application has been sent off in hopes of a federal grant to complete funding of a new bridge. King County is asking for $36 million in the TIGER II grant process; the first TIGER process is the one in which its $95 million request was denied, but the county says it’s done many things differently this time; read more here. Meantime, the process of taking apart the existing, permanently-out-of-commission bridge enters a new phase next week, and the county wants to be sure you’re not startled to see the bridge’s leaves moving for the first time since the June 30 closure – they’ll be raised and lowered as part of the process of getting ready for their dismantling within the next few weeks.Last but not least, you’re invited to a big event at Duwamish Waterway Park in South Park tomorrow – a community garage sale and barbecue, 11 am-3 pm, also featuring kids’ craft activities, entertainment, and kayaking. It’s a fundraiser to establish Wi-Fi access along South Park’s 14th Avenue South retail corridor. Here’s a map to the park (7900 10th Ave. S.)

    Sadly, by the time the bridge is replaced, South Park will no longer exist.

Sorry, comment time is over.
