You can get the jump on what’s up today, tomorrow, next week, by checking the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar any time. Most days, we also publish a list of highlights, like this – but first, two traffic/transit notes (which, if a weekday, would be handled in our separate daily traffic watch):
I-5 SOUTHBOUND REMINDER: Until Tuesday morning, if you’re taking I-5 this way through downtown, be ready for delays north of I-90, because of lane closures for expansion-joint (earthquake safety) work. Here’s the latest “live” view from the area:
METRO SERVICE CHANGE TODAY: Just a few changes for West Seattle routes, including one added trip each way on the C Line. System-wide details are here.
Now, to what’s up today/tonight:
CITY OF JOY DONATION DRIVE: 10 am-2 pm, bring your donated items to help West Seattleites stuff a truck for City of Joy, a unique project helping women on the other side of the globe. What’s needed, and why, is in our original report. The truck’s at 44th/Alaska (aka the Farmers’ Market lot).
