    For about 3 weeks now we have had no sidewalk and no parking, and to get anywhere – even to our cars, which are now parked several blocks away – we are forced to literally walk in traffic, on Delridge, and hope the drivers don’t hit us. It feels like it’s only a question of time before someone gets hit by a car.  At night it is even worse because the street lights are not working either so you’re working in the dark right next to moving cars with no separation. This is very frustrating. This construction has been going on for months at this point, so I don’t understand – have these issues not come up at earlier sections? Or were they just ignored?

    I agree with Guy. The sidewalks resemble an obstacle course and it is very dangerous to walk in the street. Why no notifications from the City on their weekly plans? This must be the longest street construction project in history – it has been going on since last June. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
