West Seattle Wednesday: Metro x 2; K-5 STEM; Admiral; more

(Thanks to Teresa for sharing that photo on the WSB Facebook wall, where meteorologist Patrick then explained: “Post-frontal shower activity, Virga visible in this pic and cold air aloft streaming in behind the front”)
Something to say – and/or ask – about the latest route revision proposal from Metro? Tonight you have TWO chances. That’s part of what’s on the list, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

BRIDGE CLOSURES AND OTHER ROAD WORK, AGAIN TODAY/TONIGHT: Same reminders as the past two days: In the Morgan Junction/Lincoln Park area on Fauntleroy Way SW and part of California SW north of M-Junction, it’s the third day of work on the “transit corridor” project to facilitate this fall’s launch of RapidRide bus service. Here’s our on-scene report from Monday, with more details. … Avalon Way again will have restrictions/detours today, 9 am-4 pm, explained here … Two West Seattle Bridge closures overnight again tonight: The eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct, east of the 1st Avenue South offramp, 9 pm-5 am (details here); the Fauntleroy Expressway (southwest end of the bridge) has an overnight closure those same hours, detailed here (and don’t forget that this coming Sunday, THE FAUNTLEROY EXPRESSWAY WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY, 9 pm Saturday till as late as midnight Sunday night).

JAPANESE-AMERICAN DAY OF REMEMBRANCE: A special event with author Mary Matsuda Gruenewald is scheduled at South Seattle Community College, 11 am-1 pm today (as previewed here), as part of a week of remembrance leading up to this Sunday’s 70th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. (Read more about the guest speaker in this story from our partners at the Seattle Times.)

K-5 STEM AT BOREN, 1ST INFORMATIONAL MEETING: One day after Seattle Public Schools announced a principal for this new public school opening this fall in West Seattle, the first informational meeting about it is set for 7 pm at Schmitz Park Elementary.

    the Admiral Neighborhood link does not work; do you have a working link for them? is there any info about agenda for tonight’s meeting?

  • Diane February 15, 2012 (12:49 pm)

    thanks; the link on events page is still incorrect; though not sure it matters, since I don’t see any updates on their website, or yahoo page; I haven’t been in a while, so not sure what’s going on there
    metro meetings are priority tonight; hope everyone who has opinions will show up and tell metro, not just comment here

Sorry, comment time is over.
