    Fauntleroy also has construction this morning.  One lane of traffic, flaggers alternating the traffic flow from one side to the other.  North of Graham for a couple of blocks.

    I think you guys said the 35th/Graham construction was going on until the end of June/July per City of Seattle, right? I can’t find the article about it.Thank you

    i’ve been working early for a while now, and hitting the 1st ave south bridge around 5:20 am. for the past 3 or 4 days, it has been raised every morning, which has made me late. i can’t find any info on scheduled openings. do you know anything about this, so i can adjust my route/schedule accordingly?

    if this keeps up, i’ll be leaving at 3 am and sleeping at work for a couple of hours just to avoid traffic.

Sorry, comment time is over.
