Comment on Five Mile Drive Closure to Vehicles
Last year we wrote about a proposal to close the outer loop of Five Mile Drive at Point Defiance to vehicle traffic on weekday mornings to make it more friendly to cyclists and pedestrians.
A pilot project implementing the closure until 11 a.m. on weekday mornings began last November. That pilot period wraps up in another month, and Metro Parks is looking for feedback on how the closures worked (or didn't) for you.
When the pilot closure ends on April 15, Metro Paks needs to decide whether to make it permanent as is or with slight adjustments, or to end it, and go back to being open to vehicles all day. They're taking input from the public on that decision via an online survey.
If you have strong feelings on the closure, now's your chance: what do you think?
