Any time I’m around Fremont I make a point to check in with our beloved Troll. Earlier this week, I found him surrounded by scaffolding and construction equipment. A couple of WSDOT workers I talked to said that the Aurora Bridge columns are undergoing seismic upgrades and are being wrapped in fiber (here’s the official word on that at WSDOT’s website.)
Did the Troll mind all the work going on around him? Of course not. He’s Seattle’s most stoic resident. Like usual, he was being photographed by passersby. I wonder if they noticed the red tagging painted around his only eye. The poor Troll. He goes through a lot inside that dark cave.
Next Halloween marks his 21-year anniversary. I will miss that party but, if you are in the area, make sure to wish him a happy birthday from Sketcher.
