After seeing a few close calls at the recently redesigned intersection, I sent an email to the project manager and got this response: “Eric, I’m pleased to report that [...]
I’ve heard a lot about potholes along NE 125th, expecially since the lane change. Well, it sounds like they’ll all be fixed at once soon. They’re repaving the whole street! See the project link up above for more details. They’re also looking to come out and talk to communities if people are interested in [...]
Representatives from the Sound Transit Lynnwood Link Extension project gave a presentation at the Pinehurst Community Council meeting last Thursday as we munched pizza at Amante Pizza.
Currently there are six options under consideration for the light rail going through Pinehurst. All of them include the rail being on the east side of the I-5 [...]
Our next Pinehurst Community Council meeting is this Thursday and everybody is welcome! We’re even buying pizza to make it more welcoming! So spread the word, especially to people who might not follow the blog or the Facebook page. We want their input on how we can better reach out to them.
