Good morning! Time to watch traffic, just in case, and to share alerts and transportation news:

ROXBURY PAVING TODAY: The city will be finishing the work between 25th and 27th SW.

ARBOR HEIGHTS MICROSURFACING CONTINUES: The long-anticipated work is under way, as announced by SDOT on Monday. Kevin McClintic shares this view of one road post-treatment:

He says the street was kept closed for about four hours after application, and has some advice: “Keep your animals inside until the sealant dries, lest they get the stuff on their paws and they lick themselves crazy.”

NIGHTTIME LANE CLOSURES ON HIGHWAY 99: Announced on Monday, for the nights leading up to the big closure this weekend (and partly beyond). Speaking of which

HIGHWAY 99 CLOSURE STARTS FRIDAY NIGHT: The stretch from the West Seattle Bridge to the Battery Street Tunnel will be closed both ways all weekend; from the tunnel to Valley Street, it will be closed late Friday night-early Wednesday morning. See maps/times here.

PAINTING CREWS ON THE WAY: SDOT expects its road-painting crews to start work out our way by week’s end.

  2. Thank you! The 911 online log is down today, we discovered about an hour ago, so tips are extra-welcome. Will check the cameras.

  3. Noticed the paving was between 25th and 27th Ave on Roxbury. Just wondering why they just didn’t include the block between 25th and 24th as well.

  4. Amen Chuck. They are spending all their money repaving Arbor Heights, which had fine roads to begin with.

  5. Exactly. Roxbury between 24th and 25th has rutted pavement as well. That didn’t make sense that this stretch wasn’t included in the repaving.
    30th Ave SW south of Roxbury is in much better shape than the block I mentioned yet this is scheduled for chip sealing/paving.

  6. Exactly. The stretch of Roxbury that wasn’t included in the paving between 24th and 25th Ave likewise has rutted pavement. It doesn’t make sense as to why this wasn’t included in the paving project.
    30th Ave Sw south of Roxbury is in better condition than this stretch, yet is scheduled for some type of microsurfacing/paving within the next few weeks.
