10:15 AM: Two notes that aren’t West Seattle, but aren’t far: The procession preceding the 1 pm T-Mobile Park memorial service for Seattle Police Officer Lexi Harris will affect traffic from Burien to SODO (the route will primarily be via I-5, not 509). Also, WSDOT crews are doing emergency work that has two lanes of southbound I-5 closed just before S. Forest Street.


6:03 AM: Good morning, The Fourth of July is getting closer. After a day of normal weather, today’s forecast is even a bit on the cool side, starting off with some clouds.


Delridge projectStation work as well as road work continues in this week’s Delridge-and-vicinity plan.

35th/Graham – Work continues here too, for the intersection’s signalized transformation.


Regular schedule for buses and ferries. WSF has announced that the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route will run two boats on Sundays starting this weekend. Holiday preview: Limited West Seattle Water Taxi service Monday (July 5th). Watch @kcmetrobus for word of bus cancellations, @wsferries for major WSF changes.

    They’re doing construction on 116th between 26th Ave SW and Ambaum, Then it proceeds down Ambaum from 116th down to 122nd.  Please use an alternate route. Looks like this is going to continue for several weeks.

      That’s more of the RapidRide H work.

Sorry, comment time is over.
