    Have there been any project updates on when SW Yancy east of Avalon will reopen?  Construction on Delridge, partial closures of SW Gennessee due to new construction and SW Yancy closed make it very challenging…

      I’m checking again today, as it’s been a few weeks since last update.

        Can you check on Thistle too? That intersection has also been taking a long time.

          That’s part of the ongoing city/county project; Yancy isn’t.

Sorry, comment time is over.
