WALKING IN EVA’S SHOES 10 am-2 pm, walk Alki and imagine Eva Falk‘s journey toting the stones that cover the historic (and endangered) Stone Cottage – at five stops along the way, including the Stone Cottage itself, volunteers will tell the true stories of those places’ histories. More info here!

    The low bridge IS open to bikes and peds.

      SDOT did not include that in its advisory so if that’s the case, it’s an update in the plan.

        It was absolutely NOT open to bikes and peds for at least a portion of the morning. I was on my way on my bike to open my SoDo business at about 11:45 Saturday morning and the bike/ped path was closed. Police were turning people back. I had to ride back 20 minutes home and get in my car and ended up opening 45 minutes late.

        Would be great to get some clarification on this. Thanks!

Sorry, comment time is over.
