West Seattle Tuesday: Road reminder; trivia times two …

(Anchor/Luna Park photo by Flickr member Nakean, from the WSB Flickr photo pool)
Part of today’s look ahead is warmer, if cloudier, weather – last night was the last subfreezing night expected for a while. Also, one more road reminder, if you haven’t already been through it, today is the day 1st Avenue South is down to one lane each way by the stadiums until April, because of Alaskan Way Viaduct south-end replacement work, which also brought southbound changes to some Metro routes that previously used 1st Ave. S. in that area, including a few serving West Seattle. Besides that reminder, the schedule’s light today; folk-rocker Abi Grace is onstage at Skylark Café and Club (WSB sponsor) tonight at 9 (heard about their menu changes yet?), and it’s trivia night at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor).

NON-WEST SEATTLE P.S. In case you are interested in seeing this: The Seattle Fire Department has sent word that the traveling Patriot Flag, a 9/11 memorial, will hang between two 100-foot ladder trucks at Seattle Center between 2 and 2:30 this afternoon, south side of the International Fountain. It’s traveling between fire departments across America (previous stop: Olympia), final destination New York City for the 10th anniversary this September.

    Mighty uneventful first day for 1st Ave/viaduct construction. Very light traffic all morning on 1st, both ramps, and the section of the viaduct that I can see.

    Construction guy came in this morning to let us know that the on and off ramps will be open until approx middle of February, when they are going to start tearing them down. The real traffic challenges will probably start then.

    Thanks for the update Andy. I am new to Alki and West Seattle area, and I pop in and out of downtown. Just when I have learned to navigate, change happens.

    Just a heads up. Trivia at Christo’s has been moved to Mondays, and will not be happening next week due to the BCS championship game. I went last night and had a lot of fun!

      Thanks – it’s moved around and obviously our standing listing, then, is wrong again. Will remove. – TR

    what are the Metro re-routes? Although there were people waiting for busses tonite at 1st & Jackson and it was still posted as bus stop – no busses came.

Sorry, comment time is over.
