WEST SEATTLE BRIDGE: Tagging vandalism cleaned up

Thanks to Conrad for sending the photo! City crews were out today cleaning up some of the tagging that vandals have been doing on the West Seattle Bridge. Conrad (who has organized recent volunteer cleanups on the ground in the area) told us, “I wanted to shout out SDOT and SPU for spending the morning removing several audacious graffiti tags on the WS Bridge. These tags were a highly visible stain on our peninsula that has already been tested so greatly over the past year with the bridge closure. Huge kudos to all involved in the removal!!” We have some followup questions out to SDOT and will add anything more we find out.

    So glad to see this; however I think the taggers now have a nice white patch to tag now.  I hope they also cover the tags on the bridge closer to Chelan Cafe visible as you travel South in the detour route.

      WS%,Take photos and report any tagging through the Find it, Fix it app. That way it is documented. Otherwise, it is possible it isn’t on the city’s radar. I’ve have very good success in the past with tags around the Junction covered withing 24hrs

    How about fixing the potholes on the Spokane Street Viaduct?  Of course they’ll wait until the high bridge reopens.

    Also highlights SDOT’s lack of access security.

    I hate to be the Cynic, but if anything this highlights the ability for SDOT to take affirmative action, but only when people do mean things to our broken bridge. I say we paint the whole thing just to prove a point.

Sorry, comment time is over.
