The weekend’s here! So is our daily list:

TRAFFIC ALERTS: SDOT plans work early this morning – done “as soon as 8 am” – to install “a small island using paint and white posts near SW Front St in the center turn lane on West Marginal Way SW [map]. We will close one lane in both directions, including the center turn lane, to complete this work.” Later in the morning, they plan to “install missing posts on West Marginal Way S and S Holden St [map]. These posts help limit the number of last-minute lane changes to get into the right turn only lane that people use to drive north over the 1st Ave S Bridge. We will be closing one of the three southbound lanes and will keep the right turn only lane open during this work. We anticipate this work to conclude as early as 12 pm.”

HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS: The list in our West Seattle Halloween Guide keeps growing!
