Welcome to the last winter weekend – at this time next Saturday spring has officially started. Here’s what you should know about the rest of today:

TRAFFIC WARNINGS: Two for today – road closures to the south 1st Avenue South Bridge Continue 24/7 all weekend and work is scheduled for all day at the Delridge / Genesee intersection today – but this is NOT part of the ongoing work SDOT / Metro Job; SDOT says it is utility work related to the housing development on this corner. ADDED 13:52: Genesee is blocked in Delridge while this work continues. Also – thanks for the tips – the 35th / Roxbury signal flashes red.

(Sunny weather often brings unannounced road works as well, so if you see anything else important please let us know – text / voice 206-293-6302 – Thank you!)
