Burnside Bridge still not ready for car traffic.

In an earlier post, I talked about the Burnside Bridge, and at that time, the bridge was set to open soon after an unexpected delay. Nowburnsiderepair1.jpg it looks like the opening has been postponed again. Last week they were struggling with issues surrounded around that 3.8 million pound counterweight. They had some big holes openedburnsiderepair2×1.jpg up in the deck earlier in the week. Now, they expect to have one lane open in each direction on October 21. The 81 year old bridge is in the middle of a 2 year rehabilitation project, and this stage is the most technically challenging.

    It’s funny how often people ask this quieostn. About 1/2 of the people I show WAYK to ask it in the first few minutes.No one walks in to a high school Spanish class and asks well, what if we couldn’t use English here? . Now, if they really did use just Spanish, they’d probably be much better off!
