South Park Progress!

South Portland Street storm sewers and paving are happening in South Park!

West Duwamish Trail connection into the north end of South Park will change from S Holden St to  S Portland St after an extension of the trail is built along West Marginal Way S from S Holden to S Portland.

Bob Winship and others in WSBC have been working with the South Park Neighborhood Association’s Transportation Committee, ECOSS,  South Park industries and SDOT to make this a win for all. Not just paint on pavement. This is flood control, storm water management, roadbed rebuilding, and complete streets for all users including freight haulers. Hoping for improvements without gentrification. The people who live, work and2014-09-13 10.07.43  2014-09-13 10.08.032014-09-13 16.58.10 own businesses in South Park need South Park.

After this link is completed, we need action with King County on the miserable missing link at the south end of South Park to the Green River Trail, and improvements on the West Duwamish Trail  north and south  South Park, so kids can ride safely to school in West Seattle, and everyone can connect from West Seattle to South Park and south to Des Moines, Tukwila,  and Renton.
