SEATTLE – Commuters and residents can give feedback and comments at an open house this week to help refine the urban and sustainable design features for the future State Route 520 in Seattle.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Museum of History and Industry, 2700 24th Ave. E. in Seattle. Short presentations are planned at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. and will include new design details for SR 520 from Interstate 5 to the west end of the floating bridge.
The meeting is the second in WSDOT’s Seattle Community Design Process, which focuses on SR 520 improvements at the I-5 interchange, Portage Bay Bridge, Montlake interchange and replacement of the west approach to the floating bridge.
During the meeting, planners will display draft design concepts that incorporate public comments received at an Oct. 1 meeting. Additional public input will help develop the sustainable urban design elements and enhance community connections, highway lids and bridge structures along SR 520 from I-5 to the west end of the floating bridge.
Americans with Disabilities Act: The meeting site is accessible to persons with disabilities. Accommodations for people with disabilities can be arranged with advance notice by calling Amanda Whitesides at 206-770-3500.
