7:03 AM: No major problems so far as we head into the heart of the commute. More to come.
7:24 AM: Since Tuesday, we have mentioned the work under way at 30th/Roxbury by Roxhill Elementary as part of pedestrian-safety improvements. Bradi shared the photo at left and had a warning for others. She says she lost a tire because the crew left yesterday without putting warning signs back in their place, so: “Unable to know just how far the holes are extended out into the road on each side, that they have cut, I turned to go west onto Roxbury from 30th Ave SW, (which there isn’t a sign closing this street off at all, going south, that is visible), my passenger back tire dropped into the, what is at least, 1-foot-deep hole, that is left unmarked, which of course, popped it!” This may have been remedied by now, but if you travel in the area while the work’s under way, be extra careful in case it happens again. P.S. Since we share this number often – in case you run into (literally or figuratively) a road or sidewalk hazard, the hotline to report it to SDOT is 206-684-ROAD.
7:56 AM: We don’t know exactly why, but Chelsea tweeted “Don’t take lower Spokane bridge!” and pronounced it bad X 3. Nothing on scanner or 911 but – you’ve been warned.
8:38 AM – SPEAKING OF ROXBURY: Joe Szilagyi of the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council sends a reminder about the first of two meetings about the SW Roxbury safety project. WWRHAH and other local community advocates lobbied for it, and now it’s happening – but your input is VITAL. Tonight’s meeting is at 6:30 pm at the Wiley Community Center in White Center’s Greenbridge neighborhood, not even a block south of Roxbury, 9800 8th SW.
8:57 AM: As also noted in comments, the low-bridge trouble involves trucks – here’s an SDOT tweet with a grab from a camera turned that way:
