SDOT - West Seattle Bridge Webinar Recap
We want to thank Heather Marx, SDOT Director of Downtown Mobility and the West Seattle High Bridge Safety Program, for sharing her stories and experiences with SDOT's response to the West Seattle Bridge crisis. Heather's presentation was a real take on her role and the overall scope of past, current, and future work being done with this bridge.
In total we had 11 virtual attendees from various sectors within the transportation industry who were able to ask any question in relationship to the West Seattle Bridge. Some of those questions included: Why not open the West Seattle bridge up to pedestrians and bicyclists, while it's being repaired for cars and trucks? Why did we not add the light rail to the bridge? Should it be repaired vs should we replace it?
