PARKING ALERT: 2 stretches of Harbor Avenue SW

Lots of questions today about “no parking” signage along Harbor Avenue SW. One stretch to the south/east of SW Florida is posted for 7 am-3 pm tomorrow through Friday; another stretch from Seacrest to Fairmount is posted for 5 am to 10 pm tomorrow (Tuesday) only. The 4-day signs are missing the added explanatory sheet of paper that usually accompanies no-parking signs; on the Tuesday-only signs, the attachment on a sign by Seacrest said “loading/unloading.” We’re following up with SDOT.

    The signs farther down for a few days are for tree trimming

    I know some of the cast of Greys anatomy are here.   I will bet it’s for some filming.

    Seattle City Light just closed off the west and east side of the 4500 block on 42nd Ave SW—essentially one entire stretch of block– with “no parking” signs for the entire weekend and all day today and never even used the streets for any work. It’s truly frustrating because there are no repercussions for this from SDOT when you submit a complaint when construction companies do this or Seattle City Light. Wrote to Herbold and also never got a response. They really just don’t care, most likely because we’re just renters.

      Whine, whine, whine  sounds so incredibly life disrupting. Have to park a block or two away. Maybe you should  look at getting  an Uber or riding a Lime bike. Half the city is renters.

        LOL. An Uber of Lyft. Maybe you should get some compassion for the senior center patrons that park here, the farmers market patrons and vendors and the small retailers that are struggling just to keep it together. Also, let’s put construction on and around your block for five+ years and then we’ll talk.

    Looks like Grey’s might need some more seattle skyline/ferry ride shots.

    There was a big TV/film production set-up yesterday afternoon where Jack Perry Park meets Alaskan Way (just before it turns into E. Marginal).  Maybe they were shooting something in the park.  Nice isolated spot to have access to some water.

      Thanks. We went by around 11 am, nothing going on. Couldn’t get back until after dark, they were wrapping up.

    Pretty surreal to step off my bus at the end of the day right into the thick of Grey’s Anatomy filming.  I am surprised that they let them block the bus stop, though.  It wasn’t an inconvenience for me.  I’m able bodied.

Sorry, comment time is over.
