As MyBallard reports, the judge overturned one of the nine decisions and required that the city go back and do an Environmental Impact Study for the section on Shilshole between 17th Ave NW and NW Vernon, a 0.3 mile section of a roughly 1.4 mile project.
Seattle, please build everything else and build it NOW!
That 0.3 mile section is straight, easy to navigate, and puts us walking and bicycling through the de-factor parking lot for Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel, Salmon Bay Cafe, and others. There aren’t dangrous tracks, just stupid parked cars.
We can wait for that section and in the meantime we willll make it a de-facto trail. The bigger dangers of the track crossing under 15th and navigating the route to the locks will be addressed and the Ballard obstructionists will see that their expensive pissing match didn’t gain them anything.
