    The Black Lives Matter artwork on the Alaska Junction crosswalk is almost not visible anymore

    Any updates on the Roxbury roadwork/sidewalk project? Curious how long it will last as it makes getting out of West Seattle via that route extra slow. Thanks!

    Those flower filed medians on Delridge will look nice at first, but will look like the medians on Harbor ave within a  couple years. Over grown, full of weeds. Isn’t  SDOT suppose to maintain these or WS should hire Ken’s lawn service and send the bill to the Mayors office.
