We start today’s highlights list with a traffic reminder:
Until tomorrow morning, WSDOT is closing multiple lanes (the number might fluctuate) on northbound I-5, not too far past the entrance from the West Seattle Bridge. So 99 or other alternatives are recommended! Or – don’t leave the peninsula at all, because PLENTY is going on:
