PSE work on Highland Drive restricts daytime parking near Kerry Park

December 13th, 2013 by Laura

Have you noticed the no parking signs near Kerry Park? We had a reader ask about the no parking signs on W Highland Dr in front of and around Kerry Park, so we contacted SDOT to get the scoop.

Highland PSE workThe signs post “no parking” during daytime hours through December 31st. It’s a long stretch of parking restrictions, and it turns out it’s for a Puget Sound Energy gas project on W Highland Ave from 2nd Ave W to 4th Ave W.

The project manager for the work attempted to distribute flyers informing residents about the “urgent” project, but was unable to reach everyone in the area. The parking signs should have the info on them, but I think we’ve all given up on trying to decipher the well-worn signs that get posted during construction and other no-parking situations.

Heads up if you have out-of-town guests who want to go to Kerry Park during the day – you’ll need to walk a little further and parking may be challenging.

Thanks to our SDOT contact for the info!
