Since the weather was nice this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to check on several of the ongoing and recently completed projects. First up, the West Thomas Overpass, that will provide a connection over 15th from Lower Queen Anne to the Elliot Bay Trail. The project is still in it's early stages, but a few of the supports are in place. As a result of the construction, part of the Elliot Bay Trail is closed.

For more information, see the project page.

Also in progress is the work on Phase II of the Ship Canal Trail. The only thing that's left now is the paving. SDOT is estimating completion in November:

Trail Completion expected in November!   
UPDATE: The trail is coming soon! Crews have now completed building all retaining walls for this new segment of the Ship Canal Trail, including the largest retaining wall alongside the Nickerson/15th Avenue West Ramp. Now weather becomes an important factor for paving of the trail – currently scheduled for mid October.  Following paving, the remaining work is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete.

Finally, the Dexter construction finished a few weeks ago; it's light-years better than the previous arrangement, go check it out.
