6:16 AM: Good morning! 80s and sunny today – though the Excessive Heat Warning alert is in effect as of 2 pm, the serious heat is expected to hold off until Saturday. Here’s a cooling view of last night’s sunset, photographed by Hana Alishio:
Junction paving – As announced Thursday, the westbound lanes of SW Alaska between California and 44th will be closed 9 am-3 pm today for repaving – that means bus rerouting, too.
Delridge project – Median and intersection work continues; next week’s preview is due out later today..
Southbound I-5 – 7 pm tonight until 5 am Monday, the mainline lanes of Southbound I-5 will close from Freeway Park to Spokane Street. The EB & WB I-90 ramps to SB I-5 will be closed. All southbound through traffic will be detoured onto the collector-distributor lanes.
Regular schedule for buses and ferries (except for the Junction detour off WB Alaska – see above)
(Watch @kcmetrobus for word of bus cancellations, @wsferries for major WSF changes.)
