FOLLOWUP: After 3 months, SW Yancy finally open again

Last Friday we had word of what was promised as one final delay for reopening SW Yancy west of 28th, which had been closed for nearly three months for drainage and other work related to the Transitional Resources supportive-housing project that’s under construction.
TR’s CEO Darcell Slovek-Walker told us on Friday that the city inspector would not let them reopen the raad until Tuesday … but just sent word that it’s open now, and we went by for the photo above as proof. (The 44-unit project, Rise at Yancy Street, is expected to open in August.)

    That’s excellent news!   Yesterday the fire alarm was going off at the health club and the fire trucks tried turning down Yancy as they didn’t realize it was closed.  They ended up having to go around via Spokane Street / Delridge / Andover delaying them by another 7 minutes.   Just glad it wasn’t an actual fire.

      It’s weird they tried coming up Avalon. There’s a fire station on Spokane Street next to the Delridge exit. If they had taken Delridge they would been there in 2 minutes. Maybe that station is heavy rescue so i’m not sure.

    i hope Thistle will open soon. It has been closed for a long time. it looks like it’s mostly storage for their vehicles. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
