‘Can you say traffic jams?’

A letter from Ballard resident Steve Drake appeared in today’s Seattle Times (read it here, but scroll down). “The other day, I get in the mail an artist’s rendition of what the new apartment/condo/retail building will look like where the old QFC was on 24th Northwest,” he writes.

“What other conclusion can one then draw when seeing more new housing units in Ballard? Can you say traffic jams?” he writes. “That leads me to ask, what traffic improvements have we gotten? … If I’m just blowing smoke, tell me. When I talk to other residents, it isn’t just me wondering where is everyone coming from and how will Seattle handle what looks like a growing population. Maybe we’re just supposed to suck it up.”
