Last day of Standard Time until fall! At 2 am Sunday, we “spring forward” an hour. Before then – here’s what’s happening:

ROAD-WORK ALERTS: Three for today. The sewer-pipe repairs on Beach Drive just north of Lowman Beach are scheduled to continue. Flaggers are assisting … In Highland Park, SDOT is building a natural-drainage system on SW Webster between 12th and 15th, 7:30 am-4 pm … And this morning, the eastbound ramp from Spokane Street to SB Highway 99 will be closed while SDOT repairs the lane divider.

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES: Find local Scouts out selling cookies today – use the lookup.

CLEANUP: 10 am-noon, join Erik and friends for a pop-up cleanup in South Park; meet at Sea Mar (1040 S. Henderson):

This is a family-friendly, leisurely clean starting at Sea Mar Community Care Center in South Park. We’ll start cleaning on the upper campus and from there will send groups east to 14th towards other Sea Mar properties and the surrounding South Park neighborhoods depending on time and group size. Vests, gloves, buckets, and pickup sticks will be provided and we’ll transfer all the trash into Seattle Public Utilities bags for pickup. Come for as little or as much as you’d like, invite your family and friends as we make this a safer environment for our community. I’ll be walking & cleaning too so if I miss you at the start time I’ll leave the supplies at the starting point. I can be reached at 206-852-9552 (Erik).
