A weather alert for possible snow showers remains in effect this morning – more likely around the North Seattle/south Snohomish County “convergence zone,” but you’re now forewarned in case it happens further south. Road work reminders: It’s day 2 of Phase 2 work on the Delridge Way repaving project; Delridge is now closed in the southbound direction between Thistle and Trenton. And this weekend, you’ll find ramp closures Friday night through Monday morning because of the I-5 Spokane St. Interchange Special Bridge Repair Project: From the West Seattle Bridge, you won’t be able to get to northbound I-5 or to Beacon Hill.
DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC ALERT THIS MORNING: Police are investigating a shooting on the south end of downtown – the 911 log puts it at 2nd Avenue Ext. and S. Main; SPD, via Twitter, says 3rd/Washington (they’re both in the same triangle area shown on this map). The investigation is likely to affect traffic in that area for hours.
8:29 AM UPDATE: KING 5‘s traffic reporter Tracy Taylor tweets that the investigation scene has cleared.
8:55 AM NOTE: Thanks to Leeann for letting us know about a protest planned on Harbor Island this afternoon. We will write a separate story about it later but in the meantime, for commute purposes, here’s what it’s about, the indigenous/tribal movement Idle No More protesting the Northwest Washington coal-terminal proposal – always tough to figure out in advance whether a protest will attract dozens or hundreds, but some plan to march from Westlake to the SSA terminal on Harbor Island.
