West Seattle Blog… | WEATHER, TRAFFIC, ROAD WORKS: Tuesday info



6:03 am: Hello, First off a reminder – if you have solid waste pickup on Tuesday make sure it’s gone – crews started at 6am this morning instead of the usual 7 due to the weather. As for that, he finally returned to the 60s overnight, but another warmer than normal day is expected. No more triple digits, however.


Looped pavement – The 36th SW was closed in Oregon for a sinkhole, and the 40th / Holly has a problem as well.

Delridge Project – Station works as well as road works are on the program for this week.


Regular schedule for buses and ferries, however Subway requires patience as they readjust the post-record heat. (We’ll talk about the next holiday weekend starting tomorrow.)

Watch @kcmetrobus for the word of bus cancellations, @wsferries for the major changes of the WSF.
