Mayor Jenny A. Durkan joined Senator Maria Cantwell and Port of Seattle Commission President Courtney Gregoire to celebrate the start of construction of the Lander Street Bridge Project. The Lander Street Bridge will provide traffic relief and improve safety for commuters and freight operations on South Lander Street between 1st Avenue South and 4th Avenue South. South Lander Street is in the state's largest and densest manufacturing and industrial area. The street now closes for over 4.5 hours each day for train crossings. This leads to travel delays, lost business revenue, increased idling and carbon dioxide emissions, and safety risks. The street currently serves 13,000 vehicles, 1,400 pedestrians, and 100 bicycle riders daily.
