7:23 AM: No incidents in or from West Seattle so far this morning. If you’re using the Fauntleroy ferry dock, note that the north tollbooth will be closed 7:30 am-2 pm today, as the adjacent Barton Pump Station Upgrade Project wraps up – 2 pm celebration this Saturday, including the reopening of Cove Park north of the dock.
ALSO ON SATURDAY: California SW will close from The Admiral District to The Junction for the West Seattle Grand Parade, preceded by the Float Dodger 5K, reopening when the parade ends in early afternoon. Watch for no-parking signs on side streets that will be used for staging and for Metro rerouting (now posted on the Metro website); parade organizers advise paying close attention to what’s on the signs, as parking restrictions and reroutes will start earlier this year.
Meantime, big transportation news is hours away:
35TH SW PLAN: 7 pm at Neighborhood House’s High Point Center (6400 Sylvan Way), SDOT’s plan for 35th SW goes public. We’re told the mayor will be there. If you can’t make it to tonight’s meeting, a second one has been scheduled for tomorrow, 6 pm, at Southwest Library (35th/Henderson).
7:48 AM: If you’re headed northbound from south of the West Seattle Bridge, two problems right now – a crash blocking one lane on NB Highway 99 at Cloverdale, and a crash reported at 4th and Michigan (no specifics).
10:05 AM: Another NB 99 crash south of here – this time at West Marginal Way. Police are en route.
10:35 AM: Heads up for possible Fauntleroy Way southbound backups again this afternoon. Washington State Ferries says one of the conditions that factored into them is continuing today: “Due to emergent dock repairs at the Vashon terminal, single-lane loading and offloading will continue until further notice. Drivers and passengers can expect delays and are advised to plan accordingly.”
