Rim road is dangerous

— image credit:

After watching over 150 cars - as well as school buses loaded with

children - struggling up and down the snow on the hill entering

Wilderness Rim on Southeast 174th Street from Cedar Falls Road for over two

hours on Monday, Jan. 3 before the county sand truck arrived, I have one

question for King County: How long do residents have to put up with this

dangerous road and how many accidents and near misses have to take

place before the county opens up the connecting road from 422nd

Avenue Southeast to the Uplands?

I have been told several times by King County Roads that this

road WILL be opened by mid-November 1999. Why has this road not

been opened by now?
