Yes, it really is the last Thursday of summer – with the fall equinox coming up this Sunday. (Come to sunset watch Sunday night with Alice Enevoldsen of Alice’s Astro Info and WSB’s “Skies Over West Seattle“!) The commute knows no seasons, though – so, we’re off and running/walking/riding/driving for today …
ROAD WORK NOTE: 10 pm tonight-5 am Friday (and again all weekend), the northbound I-5 ramp to the West Seattle Bridge will be closed – full details here.
METRO TRANSIT NOTE: In case you haven’t seen it yet, Metro is out with details of the upcoming service revisions, including changes on three West Seattle routes – here’s the story we published last night.
7:34 AM UPDATE: There’s a crash at California/Oregon that’s slowing traffic – thanks to David for the tip, just before Christopher mentioned it in comments.
David sent that photo; the crash is on 911 as California/Oregon (eastbound lane) but actually appears to be a bit to the west.
8:10 AM UPDATE: SFD has cleared that crash scene, according to the 911 log; Christopher went over in the meantime and reports, “A couple of shaken-up drivers but no major injuries. The Volvo in front seemed to escape any serious damage. Just some scratched up bumper trim. The Honda in back was really crunched up and the airbag deployed. The Volvo driver told me that the Honda driver came up the hill eastbound really fast behind her and may have been blinded by the sun.”
10:24 AM: Richard tweeted about a crash on the OTHER end of The Junction, California/Dawson.
