Questions during construction?

Oh this is just great. It's bad enough that you've taken away the two way turn access from the south; you can't make a U-turn at 198th (though you can on the rest of Aurora back to 155th), and now you can't get to Aurora from 200th either? Do you really want the businesses to go under? Grinders and Bucky's are barely scraping by with the incredible lack of support. Between heavy machinery parked out front, worker cars in the parking lot (which means that patrons have no place to park) and a portapotty out in front of the restaurant, neither place looks open. Add to that VERY poor signage, and we're talking about a disaster for business in the Aurora corridor. No businesses, no tax revenue for Shoreline. And to ask the businesses to pony up money for extra signage, when Shoreline SHOULD be bending over backwards to help them through it is simply shameful.

Businesses should receive compensation for loss of revenue during this extended period of road maintenance. City or county workers should not park in business parking lots.

This are has been torn up for months and now you say it will be longer? This is extremely poor planning. The City of Shoreline needs to restore access to Bucky's, Grinders and other affected businesses and should compensate them for lost revenue, as well.

It appears that the above map is the updated one. I found it not via a search (which it should come up from) nor on the first page of the city's website (which it should appear on), but from a blanket email that the city sends to interested parties. The above map had "updated February 10, 2015" on it.

I agree, the businesses should receive compensation, for I can imagine that once folks realize the resulting congestion, they'll head elsewhere.
