Duwamish Trail – Cars win

SDOT, this is not what we had in mind for fixing the tree root disaster on the Duwamish Trail at north end of South Park.

Roadway was just patched for vehicles so they can keep going 40-50 mph. Trail worse than ever. Unaware bike riders can be thrown into traffic here.

We’ve been asking for repair since September, 2015. Others started the requests before that. Thought we were going to get action last February.  We are running out of room here as the tree grows further into the path. It’s time to move the curb out away from the tree if you won’t cut the tree.  Our regional trails deserve better. South Park deserves better.

Fix the trail!
