hello, SJG volunteers, visitors and guests...
Arboretum and Lake Washington Boulevard users should anticipate several all-day closures of Lake Washington Boulevard this summer from Foster Island Road on the north end to Arboretum Drive on south end of the park. Access to the Seattle Japanese Garden parking lot will be available from the south end of Lake Washington Boulevard during these closures
Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to traffic:
· Sunday, July 15 - Monday, July 16, 2012
· Saturday, August 11 - Sunday August 12, 2012
* * * * *per Thomas:
I just received an update from WSDOT that they cannot close the Blvd. on Saturday July 14th. The new schedule is as follows:
Sunday July 15 –
Grind and pave from Interlaken to Boyer
Monday, July 16 –
Phase II of SCL pole placement from Interlaken to Foster Island
Install and bag signs for 2 crosswalks and speed cushions
Saturday, August 11 –
Raised crosswalk (note construction will need to start at 7:00 PM Friday – remove pavement and pour flat portion of x-walk)
Phase I and III of SCL pole placement, this would require flaggers and change in traffic control plan
Possible spot paving by Madison, this would require flaggers and change in traffic control plan
Sunday, August 12 –
Install street markings including, center striping of new pavement, sharrows, speed cushion markings, and 2 crosswalks
Steve Hoyos will coordinate with Steve Erickson; only concern is cure time needed for the raised crosswalk
September 8th and 9th -
This is a catch up weekend if the work does not all get done the other two weekends.
Please let me know what parks and U.W. crews are planning on working on each of the closure dates and I will add them into the descriptions.
