6:05 AM: Good morning!


Mixed forecast, but this morning is warmer than yesterday, which had a record low (36).


26th SW – Now closed southbound between Roxbury and Barton for street upgrades to prepare for RapidRide H Line.


Regular Metro schedule, except for the rerouting in RapidRide H Line work zones – on 26th and 15th SW in particular. Lots of canceled trips lately, so watch @kcmetrobus for word of those.

    From the, ‘in case you wondered..’ Do you know what happened at Delridge and Barton last night? Got the message from Metro indicating significant delays due to a collision. thanks

      Just that it was a crash. Wasn’t on my radar until that Metro alert, and the one-engine dispatch (indicating no major injuries) had already closed an hour before it. Apparently the cars involved needed to be towed and it was taking a while – I heard police radioing in to dispatch asking how much longer it would take because the blockage was holding up buses. – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
