King County transportation planners want to hear from drivers whose commutes will be impacted when crews replace the aging May Creek Bridge.
Send comments about the planned project to the King County Road Services Division. Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m. Nov. 23.
Submit comments to project manager Jessy Jose, 206-296-1916 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and environmental engineer Peter Drakos, 206-263-0428 or email@example.com. Road Services Division officials will review the comments.

May Creek Bridge was built in 1950. Timber supports beneath the roadway have decayed and the bridge has outlived its intended lifespan. The roadway is narrow and constricts traffic at the nearby intersection of state Route 900 and Southeast May Valley Road.
The replacement bridge would meet modern safety standards. Plans call for the replacement bridge to be 40 feet wide with a 30-foot span. The existing bridge is 16 feet long and 24 feet wide.
Officials determined the bridge-replacement project would not cause significant environmental impact.
