While we keep an eye on what’s happening on the routes through and from West Seattle, a few other notes:
SHELTER SWAPOUT: If you’re catching or changing buses in The Junction, you might notice a shelter swapout:
Kate Kaemerle took the photo Friday. We checked with Metro, whose spokesperson Jeff Switzer tells WSB it’s a refurbishment project and that the locally themed art that graced the previous shelter will be reinstalled after the work is done. No time estimate, though.
I-90 WB LANE CLOSURES CONTINUE: Here’s a WSDOT progress report on the westbound I-90 lane closures between Bellevue and Mercer Island. They continue today.
PRESIDENTIAL VISIT TOMORROW: Various regional news sources have reported that President Obama is coming to Seattle on Tuesday for more Democratic Party fundraising. Though there has been no formal public announcement of times/places, Patti Payne reports in the Puget Sound Business Journal that it’s an afternoon event in Madrona. He’s not staying overnight, so there will be a motorcade back to the airport too.
SATURDAY NIGHT 99 CLOSURE: Looking way ahead to next weekend, a reminder that Saturday (July 26) is Seafair Torchlight Night, and NB Highway 99 (Alaskan Way Viaduct) is scheduled to be closed 5:30 pm-7:45 pm for the Torchlight Run.
