    My coworker just texted me that there is a tree down on west marginal blocking a couple of lanes.

      Thanks, got a text on that & have updated above.

    Does anyone know what’s being done on 16th Ave Sw near Myrtle and long it will take? 

    • WSB June 7, 2021 (9:13 am)

      What are you seeing?

        When I went by the other day they were making marks on the road for excavation of the NB lanes, setting up “no parking” signs, and bringing in some excavating equipment.  If I recall, the “no parking” signs were only through today or tomorrow.  If I were to hazard a guess, I would say it looked like they were prepping for utility work, but I just saw them setting up so I don’t actually know what the work is in that spot, or if it’s part of a larger project that will affect more of the street once they’re done there.

        We went over. Crew already done. Fresh concrete panel in the road. SDOT doing median mowing a couple blocks north.

    WSB. Any word on what work crews were doing yesterday at W Marg/Highland park intersection??

    • WSB June 7, 2021 (1:11 pm)

      Nope. Wasn’t pre-announced. Some say it was an SPU crew.

Sorry, comment time is over.
