If you live in West Seattle, you have to be on your toes about traffic and transportation. A problem on the bridge can ruin your whole week.

City council member Tom Rasmussen is hosting a meeting next week to find out what drivers think should be done to fix traffic in the area.

He says, “Traffic volumes on the West Seattle Bridge and Spokane Viaduct are projected to increase 26-33 percent over the next 20 years.”

So how do you fix traffic? Should the city upgrade Delridge Way to a RapidRide corridor? Add another water taxi?

Attend the meeting and let your voice be heard – 6:30 pm Monday, October 19th, at the Sisson Building (home of the Senior Center of West Seattle), southeast corner of SW Oregon and California SW.
