SLU Block Party!

On Friday, August 12, 2011, the SDOT Mercer Corridor Project team attended the South Lake Union (SLU) Block Party, a neighborhood gathering with food, music, and activities. This year’s proceeds from the block party will benefit YouthCare and FareStart.

The SDOT booth included information from the Mercer West and Mercer East projects, including a travelling display, boards with project map and rendering of the Mercer Underpass, recent construction flyers, I-5 on- and off-ramp closure detour maps, and business cards. Event attendees also had an opportunity to sign up for the project email listserv. Approximately 85 visitors came by to talk to staff, ask questions and browse the materials.
