More heavy equipment in the Admiral District today, not far from the ongoing work at the Safeway redevelopment site. Thanks to the WSB’ers who sent tips on this: West Seattle’s most populous elementary school — 500+ students — is getting its new double portable today, before midwinter-break week ends.

ADDED: As WSB’ers pointed out, the Gatewood and Schmitz Park portables have arrived too. Here’s our photo from Saturday showing the one on the Gatewood playground:
