SPU is evaluating options for replacing the Fauntleroy Creek culverts under 45th Avenue S.W. and California Avenue S.W., which are in poor structural condition and in need of replacement. You can learn more about the project online at https://www.seattle.gov/util/EnvironmentConservation/Projects/FauntleroyCreekCulvertsReplacement/.
A very important opportunity exists that needs everyone’s input. Sound Transit has extended the comment period for which route the light rail should take into West Seattle until April 2. The best for the community is the underground tunnel as it would displace fewer people and not destroy the viewscape. Other areas of Seattle will be tunneled including downtown. While the tunnel option appears more expensive the above ground options do not include the cost of imminent domain and the cost of displacement of all the residences from an above ground rail. We believe that without your input the decision will be to go above ground so your input is needed now. We encourage you to look at the options and express your desires. We encourage you to support the underground tunnel option. See attached link for the description of the light rail options and the link to express your opinion. Your opinion is important. http://wsblink.participate.online/
The West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions are part of the ST3 transit system expansion plan that voters approved funding for in November 2016. These two light rail extensions will provide fast, reliable connections to dense residential and job centers throughout the region.
