Just in from WSDOT: The state will close the northbound bike lane on Dexter at Harrison Street for eight days starting Monday morning. The crunch is so the state can relocate utilities for the Highway 99 tunnel (that may or may not ever be completed).
Details from WSDOT:
To make room for SR 99 tunnel construction, crews are currently relocating utilities along Dexter Avenue North, and Harrison and Republican streets. As part of this work, a temporary closure of the northbound bicycle lane at Harrison Street is necessary.
