Downtown Link Closure

Signs are up along Commerce Street and Pacific Avenue, and conversation this morning on the Link was how passengers would get from Tacoma Dome Station to the central business district due to the temporary closure of downtown Tacoma's Link light rail that begins Saturday.

According to Sound Transit and Pierce Transit, the pavement between rails on Commerce Street between South 9th and South 13th street needs repair due to heavy use by bus and vehicular traffic. Construction is scheduled to last nine days from Aug. 8 to Aug. 16.

More info here and here.

Here is the scene this morning on Pacific Avenue . . .

"...pavement needs repair"

WTF the link installation is brand new for all intents and purposes and was already torn up once since construction for another pavement problem. How about some attention to the other bangladeshi street problems around town where the street crews haven't paid a visit since Roosevelt was President?

This is needed work.
They are building a berm under the Link.
