UPDATE: Highland Park ‘road work’ near a place to play

10:43 AM: Another traffic alert of sorts – a project under way by Highland Park Elementary. Thanks to Sam Drucker for the photos and report:

After a couple of years of planning, and in collaboration with Children’s Hospital, the Duwamish, and a local artist (and HPE alumnus), we are spending this morning painting the intersection by the entrance to our new playground.

The project is meant to help slow traffic around the school, honor and recognize and thank the tribe whose land our school and community reside on, and provide another opportunity to get people together to build relationships.

4:36 PM UPDATE: Here’s the finished mural:

The photo is from the artist, Marianne Maksirisombat.
