6:04 AM: Good morning, The weather’s in a groove – warm sunshine continues – might get into the 90s on Friday.


Delridge project – As of our most-recent check at 8 pm last night, the southbound Delridge Way SW closure was still starting at SW Thistle; both Thistle and Henderson have reopened east of Delridge. Here’s this week’s detailed plan.

California SW @ Raymond – We noticed work here Tuesday morning, then received this warning from Michael last night:

Wanted to give a heads-up that there are some steel plates on California Ave between Raymond and Juneau that were installed this week as part of a construction project. That plates are barely secured and there are loose large steel rods sticking up that will likely flatten tires. The plates are shaking the ground and can be heard from 2 blocks away.


Buses are on regular schedules – except for the South Delridge rerouting. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of bus cancellations.

For ferries and water taxis, all should be normal. Watch @wsferries for updates.
