Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is expected to announce whether to repair or replace the cracked West Seattle Bridge sometime after next week’s election.
Repairing the 36-year-old structure could cost $47 million and allow traffic to resume by 2022, a cost-benefit study for the city says. But future maintenance and other costs may rival the price tag of a partial bridge replacement — complicating the mayor’s decision.
As the mayor mulls her decision, we’d like to hear your questions about the bridge, the city’s response to the crisis and whether the structure should repaired or replaced. We’ll use your questions to inform our reporting for future stories.
