West Seattle Blog: Alki Summer Streets shorter this year

On the heels of the news that there are far fewer Summer Streets events this year, West Seattle Blog reports that the Alki Summer Streets this year is far shorter than in previous years. The event starts at 9 a.m. Sunday (May 22), and the full stretch will be open to all people (i.e. closed to motor vehicle traffic) until 11 a.m. After that, only a small section will remain opened.

From West Seattle Blog:

Though it’s been months since this year’s “car-free” Seattle Summer Streets day on Alki was confirmed for May 22nd, right after the West Seattle 5K (signed up yet?), a major change from years past has not been widely announced – till now. Checking the Alki Summer Streets page on the city website, we noticed the map above, showing that only 56th SW to 63rd SW would be closed all day, with the much-longer stretch to the east/south only closed till 11 am, during the 5K.

WSB asked about the change, and SDOT’s Dawn Schellenberg said it came at the request of the Alki Community Council:

The decision was made after meeting with the Alki Community Council and talking with some of the businesses along Alki. Folks preferred a shorter route that could be fully closed over a longer one that required a travel lane remain open.
