School walkouts this morning

March 14th, 2018 by sarawilly

A walkout is planned this morning in many Seattle schools, to protest Congress’ reaction to gun violence in schools, exactly one month after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Students from thousands of schools across the country will leave their classes at 10am, and remain out for 17 minutes, one minute to honor each student killed during the shooting.

The walkouts are organized by students.

This map shows which schools are participating in the Seattle area. On March 24, all are invited to participate in March For Our Lives, which begins at Cal Anderson Park at 10 am. and ends at Key Arena.

Traffic impacts on Sand Point Way N.E. at N.E. Windermere Road for sewer pipe repair

March 6th, 2018 by sarawilly

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) contractor crews will be repairing a sewer pipe at the intersection of Sand Point Way N.E. and N.E. Windermere Road.

Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday, March 6 and should take a day or less to complete. Construction at this site is weather dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of possible wet weather. Work hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both roads will remain fully open during non-work hours and peak travel times.

When work is occurring, the southbound curbside lane of Sand Point Way N.E. will be closed near the work area and N.E. Windermere Road may have lane restrictions near the intersection with Sand Point Way N.E. Residents and commuters may experience traffic delays and parking restrictions. SPU contractor crews will provide access to businesses during construction.
