We live on S. Lander near this intersection, and apparently there will be no parking on our street until July 18th!
The no parking restrictions that were posted yesterday (on S Lander St., 18th Ave S, etc.) are for the continued investigative work and geotechnical operations on the voids that were identified and filled.
The parking restrictions are only from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. so residents will be able to park during the evening/nighttime hours. The signs do not reflect that, but I have asked the contractor to change the signs so it is more clear.
If you have any specific questions on this activity, feel free to e-mail me directly, Jennifer Lemus, Sound Transit – firstname.lastname@example.org.
funny that the Google map doesn’t even show Lander Street existing anymore between 16th and 17th. If only we could have gotten the City of Seattle to go for that… but they determined this is a vital transportation link for emergency vehicular access that needs to be restored. Really.
