Magnolia Bridge Replacement Project

For Immediate Release: May 6, 2003

Contact: Marybeth Turner, Communications, (206) 684-8548

Magnolia Neighbors to Meet about Upcoming Bridge Replacement Study

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is hosting a community "scoping" meeting for the Magnolia Bride Replacement Project. The purpose is to learn what the public thinks would be important to study in the project's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

May 22, 2003
5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Blaine K-8 School, 2550 34th Avenue West

So far, SDOT plans to examine in the EIS:

Earth; Plants and Animals/Fisheries
Water Quality
Hazardous Materials
Land Use
Relationship to Plans and Policies
Socioeconomic Conditions
Environmental Justice
Historic and Cultural Resources
Visual Quality
Parks and Recreation
Air Quality
Public Services; and Utilities

SDOT is asking the public if there are other categories it should be looking at, or if people have specific concerns within one of these categories.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an open house-style format with project team members available to ask questions. At 6:30 p.m. a brief presentation will be given on the three replacement alternatives. The meeting will conclude with public comments being taken by a court reporter starting at 7:00 p.m.

The public can also leave written comments at any time during the meeting or send them by June 6 to:

Kirk T. Jones
Seattle Department of Transportation
700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3900
Seattle, WA 98104-5043
