Mostly cloudy, chance of PM rain, high in the 40s. (Monday’s high was 46, three degrees below what’s normal for that date.) UPDATE: The “PM rain” has already arrived.

TODAY’S TRANSIT STATUS

Metro is on a regular schedule today but still running with fewer buses and fewer drivers – keep watching notification channels such as @kcmetroalerts for trip cancellations and route suspensions.

-The West Seattle Water Taxi is on its regular schedule.

-WSF’s Triangle Route remains on a two-boat schedule – check here for alerts/updates.

ROAD WORK

Today and Wednesday (January 24-25), expect intermittent lane closures on the South Park Bridge, 8 am-3 pm each day, for crews who will be power-washing the bridge sidewalks.

ADDED 8:55 AM: Lane closures on California south of Willow for what appears to be SDOT work.

    Pole replacement at California and Charlestown, no turns onto Charlestown east or west.

    The pole they replaced had deep a splinter crack for years. It was held together with a metal collar. Glad it finally got replaced.
