Re: Transportation from Seward Park/Rainier Valley into center of city substandard
Dear Ms. Drago:
It is my understanding that you are on the Transportation Committee of the Seattle City Council. The reason that I am writing to you is because the transportation from Seward Park/Rainier Valley into the center of the city (i.e. Downtown, Capitol Hill, etc.) is substandard. First, for some unfathomable reason, Lake Washington Boulevard is closed every Sunday and Thursday during the summer, to accommodate the bicyclists. Secondly, on Rainier Avenue, between Martin Luther King Blvd. and McClellan, the city is doing a lot of construction and repaving of the road. I feel that the citizens of the Seward Park/Rainier Valley Neighborhood are being ill served.
In my humble opinion, Lake Washington Boulevard should be open to motorists on every other Sunday. There is no reason why the motorists should have to accommodate the bicyclists like this and deprive themselves of access to the center of the city.
Thank you kindly for your attention to this matter.
