Ramps to nowhere to be removed

WSDOT is removing the “ramps to nowhere,” part of the never-completed R.H. Thomson Expressway that would have connected Lake City with south Seattle, bypassing I-5.

Since the project was canceled in 1971, the ramps, located in the Washington Park Arboretum, have been a popular summer spot for divers, usually teen-aged boys, jumping into Lake Washington.
