    Good morning WSB, I know this has nothing to do with WS but do you have any info on the work that’s been going on, on Ambaum Blvd between SW 116th – 120th St? When I look on the B-Town Blog  there is nothing, no updates… same as the work, that’s NOT going on, on that roadway. it is like it has came to a stand-stillThank you.

      The monthly update doesn’t get into schedule specifics the way the SDOT updates on other projects always did. However, I highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity tomorrow if you can – I sat in on one a couple weeks ago; it was just me and one member of the general public, with lots of opportunities to ask the project team ANYTHING:
