Going through South Park? Don’t speed.

    I did not see work crews on the bridge on the weekend.  WHY?  The City needs to speed up work on this critical bridge structure.

      MJ,The city’s project is available. You can view it if you’d like to see the time-line. There are lots of factors that might be at play. Over time limits, curing, interior work, I don’t know.  Lisa Herbold has been pretty good about posting information for us.

      Probably its a  low priority project that overtime is not allowed.   The elected officials dont have to live in west Seattle so ain’t thinking about the bridge.

        Yeah, actually, the elected officials DO live in West Seattle. We have a higher concentration than any other part o the city. 3 City Councilmembers, 1 County Councilmember, the County Executive, 3 state legislators, and a Congresswoman.

Sorry, comment time is over.
