    Will 35th & Avalon closure affect pedestrians and bikes? Will there be sidewalk passage allowed?

      It does look like they have closed sidewalks crossing 35th. You can detor half a block around north near the taco time entrance, but the detor is not marked.The temp bus stop for the C going downtown is on Fauntleroy behind the Starbucks. It is easy to miss if there is not a crowd waiting for it.

    NB 1st Ave is moving very slow this morning. Took 11 minutes from bus turning onto Dearborn til it arrived at 1st & king. What happened to timing priority for lights on 1st through pioneer square?

    Much quicker route for C without having to wind through all that construction.

    Has anyone mentioned if this will affect the drive-thru access to Habit Burger Grill? The exit of the drive-thru is very close to the intersection.

      We are going that way after a meeting we are in now & will look.

    Major cluster now. Someone is directing traffic at 37th/Fauntleroy. Avoid the area if you can.

    • WSB September 6, 2019 (11:49 am)

      Writing our followup now. It’s not bad on Fauntleroy, just busy, so give yourself extra time.

Sorry, comment time is over.
