7:06 AM: Happy Thursday! No trouble reports in the immediate vicinity right now.
If you bicycle to work – the new West Seattle Bike Connections group is out by the low bridge, meeting and greeting riders, till about 9:45 am, as previewed here.
For bus riders: If you didn’t catch it in the Wednesday comment thread, Metro has announced more details about the buses to be added to Routes 120 and 55 next Monday:
The two new morning trips on Route 55 are scheduled to leave from the Admiral District at 6:37 and 8:20 AM, and arrive on Seneca Street at Second Avenue at 7:08 and 8:51 respectively. The added Route 55 afternoon trips are scheduled to leave from Blanchard St in Belltown at 4:54 and 5:17 PM.
The two new morning trips on Route 120 are scheduled to leave from the Burien Transit Center at 6:26 and 7:14 AM, from Westwood Village at 6:50 and 7:39, and arrive on Third Avenue in downtown Seattle at about 7:25 and 8:15 respectively. The added Route 120 afternoon trips are scheduled to leave from southbound on Third Avenue at Pike Street at 4:45 and 5:11 PM.
8:10 AM UPDATE: Bridge and buses both reported to be lighter than usual today – including two tweets (here and here) re: RapidRide. Which reminds us – the Sound Transit “open house on a bus” meeting is tonight, too.
10:11 PM NOTE: Buried in the weekly Construction Lookahead, we found a city note that the rest of surface westbound Spokane Street would open by tomorrow morning. Checked it out about an hour ago, and discovered it’s already open. Separate story (with photo) here.
