TRAFFIC ALERT: Sylvan Way work done, but beware of bumps

Thanks to Sam for the photos and update: Sylvan Way has just reopened after the weekend-long Seattle Public Utilities work to install new drainage. But she has words of warning:

“There will be another crew at some point that will grade the road and make it smooth. It’s pretty dangerous right now. I would caution drivers, especially motorcycles. There are several different layers/bumps in the road.” So whatever your mode of travel, take extra care on Sylvan Way. We’ll be checking with the city post-holiday to see when the smoothing work is planned

    Ugh, that whole stretch of road all the way down to Home Depot could use an an upgrade.

    Will they be designating Sylvan Way an ORV path or will the pavement be properly surfaced/re-poured soon?

      As mentioned above, they will return to smooth it. How soon that will be, I won’t be able to ask until government folks are back on duty Tuesday.

    It’s not just good, it’s good enough.

    I mean we made it with new pavement for a whole year? Two years? Of course they needed to get it back to its usual moonscape. Maybe I can get a matching slow leak in my other front tire by hitting another Sylvan crater. What a freaking joke. Considering it took them 6 months and several find it fix it reports just to put stripes on the street after the last pave job and multiple wrecks into fences to get anyone to recognize this section of the bridge detour I’m sure we can expect them to never come back and make this right. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
