6:03 AM: Good morning!


After an unusually warm Thursday (high of 69), today’s forecast includes intermittent rain and a high around 60.


26th SW – Ongoing closure between Roxbury and Barton for RapidRide H Line prep work. We checked on Wednesday – about another month to go. (They’ve had a procurement delay in signal loops.)

This weekend – From SDOT:

This weekend we’ll be installing a small island using paint and white posts near SW Front St in the center turn lane on West Marginal Way SW. This work is anticipated to begin as early as 4 AM Saturday and will conclude as soon as 8 AM. We will close one lane in both directions, including the center turn lane, to complete this work.

We’ll also be working to install missing posts on West Marginal Way S and S Holden St later in the afternoon on Saturday. 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.


Regular Metro schedule, except for the rerouting in RapidRide H Line work zones – on 26th and 15th SW in particular. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of trip cancellations.

For ferries and Water Taxi: WSF says it’s back to two-boat service on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run. Check here for alerts/updates. The Water Taxi remains on its new schedule (no weekend or off-peak shuttle buses).
