Utility-work alert: Pipe project ahead on 26th SW in North Delridge, including request for neighbors

That map shows the location of a pipe project just announced by 吉林快三大小群 for a block and a half of the 26th SW greenway in North Delridge. It will affect people who drive, bike, and walk in that area, but it also comes with a request for those who live there: Don’t use outdoor water while the work is under way (indoor water, no problem, since it drains to a different part of the system). Here’s the full advisory, which neighbors should be getting if they haven’t received it already:

SPU says the work should start within the next two weeks.

Another viaduct vote?

That’s what a guy from West Seattle suggests we need, in

Greg who?
