Morning traffic notes: South Park fire; presidential departure

Two traffic notes that aren’t inside West Seattle proper but might affect some outbound from here:

SOUTH PARK FIRE: A house fire in the 1000 block of Cloverdale has police blocking that arterial between 10th and 12th. We’ll be updating coverage on our SP site.

PRESIDENTIAL DEPARTURE: After spending the night in Bellevue following his Hunts Point fundraisers, President Obama is scheduled to head back to Boeing Field in the 9 am hour, which will again mean some I-5 traffic stoppages (and, usually, a domino effect on the eastbound West Seattle Bridge).

(9:31 AM UPDATE: The president has departed – we’re on Alki watching the tribal canoes’ departure, and Air Force One flew right over.)

    Another fire at 7201 West Marginal Way SW. That’s near Nickelsville, hope they’re okay…

      DM, Patrick just got there – we are both out in the field, I’m at Alki covering waterborne news and he was headed back from South Park when he found out about that call – it appears to have been at Waste Management, and the last unit was leaving. I’m checking with the SFD PIO to see what it was about. – TR
