Arboretum directions from a different direction
- The Emerald City Wanderers have learned that the 45th
Street exit off of I-5 is closed; we are unsure when
it will reopen. If you were intending to follow the
directions to the Arboretum walk start point, as
published on the AVA or ECW websites or in the ESVA
Pathfinder, you will not be affected, as they involve
taking the SR 520 exit.
However, if you were intending to use the 45th Street
exit, you will need to adjust. Here is a weblink to
4/7/2007 City and State: Seattle WA
Host Club: Emerald City Wanderers

Event Description: This is ECW's annual Easter walk,
but it is a Saturday only event. Walkers will pass
thru the UW campus (College Campus event) and cross
the Montlake Bridge enroute to Foster Island and the
Arboretum. Easter's late date should assure us of lots
of flowers and trees abloom in the Arboretum. More
details as they become available.
Start Point Address / Driving Directions: E-5 Parking
Lot at the University of Washington.
From I-5 N' or S'bound, take exit for SR 520. Take the
Montlake Ave. exit and at intersection turn left onto
Montlake (N'bound). Move to right lane and pass Husky
Stadium and Athletic facilities and fields. Follow
Montlake as it curves to the right and merges
with/becomes 45th Street. Continue on 45th past U
Village on your left. At 5 way intersection of 45th
and Mary Gates Way, turn right onto Gates Way. Take
first right and follow signs to E-5 Parking Lot.
