    Stop sign at top of highland park way got recycled by a vehicle and is in pieces on ground they were putting temporary one up when I went through earlier today but people are still blowing through it like it’s not there watch out if your coming up/down hill

      Wouldn’t it be great if there were a roundabout at that intersection? Then cars would have to slow down and a stop sign wouldn’t be needed!

        Well, yes, it would be nice. Unfortunately, each time we mention it, they raise the cost estimate another million or two…

    Looks like they are doing a reroute off 1st for Wednesday now. It would be nice if they could make these decisions before the day of the event like the planned and early communication about tomorrow’s reroute. 

    • WSB August 14, 2019 (2:23 pm)

      Where did you see that? They have reiterated the alert this afternoon in multiple channels but they are all for the same period previously announced, 5 am tomorrow (Thursday 8/15) through 5 am Friday (8/16).

        You are right! I had the wrong day. Wishful thinking. So sorry for the confusion. Please delete my comment if possible.

      The latest email I received from Metro, on this subject, is time-stamped at 1:43 PM today. It states as WSB commented, and as what the previous notices have mentioned, that the reroute is for tomorrow, Thursday, Aug 15th, only—Mike

    Hi – Does anyone know if the Water Taxi will be running late tonight because of the concert?  I can’t find any info on their site.  Guessing the answer is no, since it’s not been messaged.  Thanks.  

    • WSB August 14, 2019 (3:52 pm)

      No, just for sports events except in extremely rare circumstances which are announced in advance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
