TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Pre-holiday Thursday watch

(SDOT MAP with travel times/video links; is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE)

7:03 AM: No incidents reported so far in or from West Seattle.

REMINDERS FOR TOMORROW: The King County Water Taxi will be out of service Friday in observance of Veterans Day; also, no school tomorrow, and many other closures … Tomorrow night, the Battery Street Tunnel will be closed both ways, 11:59 pm Friday to 6 am Saturday, during paving work above the tunnel.

7:12 AM: Just in from Metro:

A Route 55 bus also was skipped half an hour ago.

9:27 AM: Relatively uneventful commute. But we also keep watch throughout the day/night, so if you see/hear about a problem your West Seattle neighbors should be aware of, please let us know (if/when you can safely/legally use your phone) – 206-293-6302.

One other transportation-related note: The Washington State Ferries Triangle Task Force meets 4:30-7 pm at Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW).

And we end on a cheery note – it’s a transit-related tweet from Jeremy:

    The 7:19 #56 has been cancelled, as was an earlier #55.  And I just gotta say there are tons of people filling the 57!  We need more service.

    My sincerest apologies to the woman in the white, expensive SUV this morning honking at me while I waited  for backed-up northbound traffic to clear so I could safely turn left from Dakota onto Delridge, and then illegally passing me on my left to make the turn into oncoming traffic. At least I was close enough to her car to rap on it a couple times with my hand to let her know how wrong I was!

    that left turn from Dakota to Delridge to go north is a crapshoot. I spent 2 years going to the dialysis center on Dakota , and would just go around the block to Andover to make my left. Was much easier. And, yes, privileged women in big white expensive SUVs always come first, doncha know? ;-)
