Close 54th Street?
Neighbors along the lower end of Highland Avenue are concerned about potential plans to close 54th Street at Pearl. Things are in the very early stages, but as part of the overall development of Point Defiance Park, one of the alternatives under consideration is a new roundabout at the entrance that would not feed into either N. 54th or N. Parkway on the other side of Pearl. Metro Parks and Tacoma planners are hosting an open house tomorrow night at the Pagoda to hear from neighbors that might be impacted by those road closures. The open house runs from 6:30 to 8pm. A flyer with more details can be found here. Officials will also be presenting details to the Ruston council on August 19th, so let your voice be heard!
