6:03 AM: Good morning! Our gentle warming trend might continue today.
BACK TO SCHOOL
The biggest back-to-school week continues. It’s the first day for Highline Public Schools immediately south of West Seattle; it’s the second day for Seattle Public Schools. Reminder that school buses, school-zone flashing beacons, and speed cameras are all in operation now.
Spokane Street Viaduct – The “deck scan” is scheduled to continue today, 8 am-5 pm, with lane reductions and rolling slowdowns.
26th SW & beyond – Northbound 26th SW closure continues between Roxbury and Barton.
Delridge project – Most of the current work involves curbs, sidewalks, and landscaping.
Buses are on regular schedules – except for the rerouting in RapidRise H Line work zones. Lots of trip cancellations Wednesday, so watch @kcmetrobus for word of those.
For ferries and water taxis, regular schedule – but note that the West Seattle Water Taxi will be on a reduced schedule Monday. Watch @wsferries for updates.
