    I realize this is probably an apple/orange – laymen’s perspective comment but it seems like the contractor working on the new south section of 99 is moving lots faster than the contractor doing the Spokane Street Viaduct expansion. Current plans for say completion is “Spring 2012”. Sooner would better SDOT!

    robert: well-said. PCL is the contractor on the SSV, and they should be ashamed of themselves working so close to skanska, the contractor for hwy 99
    then again, hwy 99 has a huge budget in comparison, and bigger incentive to move quickly.
    but SDOT knew the day was coming when 99 would be severed. and they were pretty quiet with the progress update emails this summer. not much information.
    TR: the first paragraph about the ramps from I-5 being closed should read columbian way, not columbia city.

Sorry, comment time is over.
