Much going on tonight – with the monthly West Seattle Art Walk at the top of the list. From the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar (thank you to everyone who shares announcements!):
TRAFFIC ALERTS: If you’re downtown, remember the Microsoft meeting today (noted here on Wednesday); tonight, from our day-by-day/night-by-night list, two overnight road closures, same as last night: Southbound 99/Alaskan Way Viaduct 9 pm-5 am, and eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct 10 pm-5 am – so if you get on the eastbound high bridge during the closure, you’ll have to exit to northbound 99.
