Northbound I-5 is reported to have some slowdowns downtown because of a crash near the Seneca ramp. That’s what’s up as we start the morning watch, and for later:

PRESIDENTIAL VISIT TODAY: Still no exact routes/times but as reported here on Monday, the advisory issued by Boeing Field, which Air Force One will use, suggest his quick visit for a Madrona fundraiser (possibly also Hunts Point) will be in the 3-7:30 pm vicinity. Especially in the I-5 corridor, prepare for possible motorcade stops/slowdowns.

The big transportation news, in case you missed it:

BUS-CUT PLAN CHANGE: The County Council and County Executive have agreed to go ahead with this September’s Metro cuts as previously announced, and the same amount of service cuts next February as planned – but not necessarily the same routes – and then before they get anywhere near September 2015, when the worst West Seattle cuts were supposed to happen, they’ll revisit the whole thing in the budgeting process.
