    When is the next closure of the busy 35th SW & Avalon intersection? Wasn’t it going to be closed entirely for 3 extended weekends, including all-day on Fridays?

    I do not take the 56 route out of Alki, but given the amount of cancellation of runs reported through Metro Alerts, I feel Alki residents who rely on that route should be given free access on the Ride 2 Ride shuttle, especially as many of the cancellation notices arrive after the fact. My two cents. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
