Weekly report ... Have you seen it?

We've talked before about the WSDOT quarterly Gray Notebook, a regular three-month summary of agency accountability measures. It's detailed and technical, but very readable.

We know that not everyone has the patience for such dense information. So each week WSDOT publishes a weekly report that includes information on the latest project updates, interesting highway incidents and other news about agency activities. There also is a weekly podcast for those who want their information in an audio format.

How else can we meet your information expectations? What information would you like to see?

WSDOT’s I-5 Downtown Seattle Work Starts Tonight

After a safety briefing, contractor crews are now resting up to be ready for overnight work that will kick-off up to 19 consecutive days of lane closures on northbound I-5 from Spokane Street to I-90. We will be logging our construction progress on our new traffic and construction information page, where drivers can also get up-to-date traffic information about I-5 and alternate routes to help plan their trip.

Tell us about your commute during these challenging days of intense lane and ramp closures. Many of you have already shared your projected plans on our earlier I-5 blog post. Now we want to hear stories from the road and any tips you can pass along to others trying to navigate around the construction. Oh and remember, if you have questions about the project our project hotline has answers at 206.440.4704.
