*   Opening 54 tiny homes in South Lake Union and 30 new tiny homes at 18th and Yesler following community engagement and site approval. These tiny homes would serve approximately 103 people.

    Durkan's Legislation To Increase Bridge Housing And Shelter Capacity Passes City Council Committee - The Seattle Medium
    Seattle Mayor Jenny A. Durkan's legislation to increase the number of bridge housing and shelter units in 90 days by 25% to serve nearly 525 additional people every night passed unanimously out of the Finance and Neighborhoods Committee, which is chaired by Councilmember Sally Bagshaw.

Connelly: A call to construction projects: Give US a break!

The great 23rd Avenue mess produced best evidence of blunderbuss planning. The reconstruction project closed the busy 23rd & Union intersection one Sunday. Nobody told westbound motorists headed up Union. They reached the intersection and were forced to turn around in a narrow space.

I was driving to work down Pine Street the other day. The Seattle Dept. of Transportation has already created confusion here: The center lane suddenly becomes a left turn lane at 5th & Pine, while part of the right lane is still marked: "Buses Only."

Or there was the downtown experience of heading east up Marion Street, intending to take 6th Avenue to Madison Street. However, construction was underway at 6th and Marion, and traffic was diverted south.

Another instance: With help from Seattle City Council member Sally Bagshaw -- yes, one people at City Hall do constituent work -- I once got an orange, left-pointed detour sign taken down at the intersection of 4th and Wall.

    Connelly: A call to construction projects: Give US a break!
    Published 12:58 pm, Thursday, June 14, 2018 Over the years I have watched for, appreciated and heeded highway construction zone signs carrying the message: "Give 'em a brake." The navigation of Seattle construction zones raises the need for an equally important admonition: "Give US a break."
