VIADUCT CLOSURE, AND POST-CLOSURE, MEETING TONIGHT: When the upcoming Alaskan Way Viaduct demolition/construction closure is over on or by October 31st, drivers will be using this bypass – and the section of The Viaduct that’s over it now will be gone. But before you get there – it’s the nine-day, 10-night closure, and TONIGHT is your chance for Q/A, one-on-one and/or in a large group, with the people who have answers. West Seattle High School commons, 6-8 pm (with three West Seattleites speaking at 6:30 – City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, County Councilmember Joe McDermott, and Viaduct deputy project director Matt Preedy). 3000 California SW.
ROAD WORK SCHEDULED FOR TODAY: Unless it’s called off because of the rain (we’re checking), today is the scheduled start of work to put in a downhill transit lane and uphill bike lane along part of SW Avalon Way through the Luna Park business district.
COLUMBUS DAY: No postal mail and no banks. It’s not a local government holiday, though, so those offices are open, as are schools.
VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Today’s a key deadline on the road to next month’s election – the deadline to register, or update your information, online or by mail. Full details here.
