Hazard for West Seattle commuters and others heading south from downtown

Hazard: The asphalt edging around a steel plate has disintegrated into loose gravel. The plate sits at an angle to the direction of travel. Cyclists expecting to ride smoothly up onto the plate might get thrown by the edge of the plate.


Location: The south end of the Elliot Bay Trail, just north of the trail's end at Atlantic St. This is the trail around the tunnel construction zone.


I have called SDOT at 684-ROAD and did not get a very satisfactory response. I could not get the person who answered to understand this is a dangerous situation. I doubt it will be addressed today.
