Mercer Mess

Despite an ongoing construction effort by the Seattle DOT, The Mercer Mess continues to make survival an ongoing struggle for local businesses along Fairview and Republican. The owner of Pilates Seattle International recently told KOMO that she is struggling to stay open and not alone. City construction may fix the mess long-term but the short-term effect is loss of retail parking and disability access. With another phase of construction, west of Dexter Avenue, expected to begin in 2013, it won't get much easier. [KOMO]
