6:06 AM: Good morning, Cloudy forecast today.


Roxbury repaving – This is scheduled to continue today, 7 am-4 pm, between 24th and 25th.

New today: SW Genesee – For the next week or so, Genesee will be down to one lane, alternating, between 26th and 30th, because of vehicles working on the nearby “pond.” As explained here, the work is expected to happen 7 am-6 pm.

Delridge project – Southbound Delridge is still closed between Holden and Trenton. So is Henderson on the east side of Delridge; other closures are ahead, according to this week’s update.


Buses are on their regular schedules – except for the Route 120 reroute because of the southbound Delridge Way work and the Route 128 reroute because of the SW Henderson closure east of Delridge. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of bus cancellations.

For ferries, regular schedule. Watch and @wsferries for updates.

    Just tried the detour on West marginal to get to Costco and it was backed up about a mile from the Highland Park intersection heading south. Never seen it that bad. We ended up just turning around and coming back home. Now I’m going to cancel my Costco membership.

    HUH? What you said makes no sense…Costco had nothing to do with the traffic jam why are you cancelling your membership???

    If a mile back up gets you to cancel your Costco membership, You should try driving on I-5 south bound towards Tacoma about 4pm. That will get you to sell your car and call the State and cancel your drivers license. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
