What you need to know for your West Seattle Saturday

First, (update) THREE traffic alerts:

That’s the Fauntleroy end of the high bridge, where Seattle Public Utilities is scheduled to be doing road repair all weekend following recent sewer work. The second traffic alert is for the 5-way intersection just west of the low bridge, where crews are working this weekend and next on safety improvements, as described and shown here. (3rd alert added 9:27 am; thanks to Kim) Also – 34th SW is closed near High Point Community Center for paving work.

    When I drove over the bridge at 9:30 AM there was a big sign saying that the low bridge was closed. But the high bridge was also intermittently being closed for the Fauntelroy construction. Why on earth would SDOT have closed the two main access points to West Seattle on the same day at the same time?

Sorry, comment time is over.
