    Stall on off ramp in left lane at 1st and train signal stopping all traffic just beyond with no actual train traffic going.

    Any idea why, or how long, SW Jacobsen will be closed?

      First I’ve heard of it, sorry to say. No SDOT advisories, but they fluctuate in what they send out, to say the least. We’ll go take a look as soon as we can, and then if necessary I’ll ping the folks downtown.

        Open as of when we went through just before 3. From the signage and equipment, it’s spot repaving – and it looks like they may have another day of work tomorrow, from the no-parking signs.

    Thanks WSB! You’re the best.

Sorry, comment time is over.
