    Does anyone have updated information on the Alki Beach Restroom remodel/replacement?  Back in January they said it would be done by early summer.  It is not even close to being done.  In the meantime the foot/bicycle/scooter/surrey paths are bottlenecked into one 6′ gap that get’s dicey as all the users meet head on.  Just wondering.

    Has been strange. They built the shell almost 2 months ago then nothing. 2 guys came @ 5 weeks ago and pressure washed the building and left. I did catch one of the workers and asked when it would be finished. He said “soon, i hope” NO work done since.

      I just got the info. Awaiting certain materials. Separate story to come.

Sorry, comment time is over.
