Two notes for starters:

2 FERRIES ON FAUNTLEROY-VASHON-SOUTHWORTH RUN: With the Klahowya out for inspection and no backup boat available, WSF says the “triangle route” will only have two boats today. Here are the sailing times.

CHARLESTOWN CLOSURE SCHEDULED: Starting at 8 am today, SW Charlestown is expected to be closed for a week while SDOT replaces concrete panels, as announced last week. If you’re traveling between California and 55th, you’re asked to detour via Genesee instead.


  1. There is a stalled vehicle at the end of the on ramp from the WS Bridge to north 99. Not blocking, but hard to see.

  2. They’ve started jack hammering the Charlestown hill street and our house on 46th is vibrating!

  5. Gee, why couldn’t they wait on Charlestown until next week when school is out?

  6. I’m confused as to why they decided to replace concrete panels on the hill when nothing appeared to be wrong with them. Especially when there are MANY other streets in terrible condition around West Seattle.
