Seattle and the State of Washington are going to have another of their periodic SR520 workgroup meetings tomorrow:
A team of representatives from the state, city of Seattle and transit agencies will meet again to discuss design refinements for the new State Route 520 at a workgroup meeting Aug. 19. The public and the media are welcome to attend…
Thursday, Aug. 19
Location: Puget Sound Regional Council Board Room, 1011 Western Ave., Suite 500, Seattle
Time: 3 – 5 p.m. technical presentation to the workgroup (includes public comment)
5 – 6:30 p.m. public information session
Several topics will be discussed, including:
- Bicycle and pedestrian connections.
- Traffic movements and operations.
- Bus stop locations and connections.
- Traffic calming and management in the Washington Park Arboretum.
The workgroup will accept public comments at the end of their meeting.
Recommendations come out October 1st. I’m most interested in there being transit or HOV lanes from the interchange to Husky Stadium, though much of our readership will be more fired up about the Montlake Flyer Stop.
