Milepost 31 turns one
Dec. 1 marked the one-year anniversary of Milepost 31. The information center has seen more than 7,000 visitors since it opened, with visitors coming from as far away as Sweden and Japan. A monthly First Thursday speaker series hosted at Milepost 31 offers visitors more insight on the massive SR 99 Tunnel Project and related topics.
Admission is free. Milepost 31 is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and stays open until 8 p.m. on First Thursdays. After the talk, be sure to leave enough time to explore the rest of the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square. During the Art Walk on Dec. 6, don’t miss out on the Pioneer Square Tree Lighting in Occidental Park and the Howliday Style Dog Parade, with events starting at 5 p.m. Free parking is available for First Thursday Art Walk patrons at select garages in Pioneer Square between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. A list of participating parking garages is posted on the First Thursday website.
