The Eastside: There's a reason we have a moat...
After a summer full of amazing artwork and infotainment, we have reached the end of our weekly Paint Maps for the year. We may post another, should another busy weekend arrive, but for now, we’ll pick back up doing them every weekend next summer! We hope they’ve been helpful for your weekend travel plans, as they’ve been a lot of fun to make. This weekend is busy with plenty of events and continued construction work statewide. And now that it’s fall, that means changing weather. Most of our work is weather-dependent, so closures may change if we get rain or snow. Here are the highlights:
· For folks who plan to cross Lake Washington, the SR 520 bridge will close in both directions from 11:59 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, through 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 2. One exception, though, as one lane in each direction will reopen from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday & Sunday. Even though one lane will be open during the day this weekend, expect lengthy travel times due to the lane closures. Also eastbound SR 520 between 148th Ave NE and NE 40th St in Redmond will close from 11 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Sunday. Plan ahead or use alternate routes, such as I-90!
· It’s the Mariners’ final homestand, which means near or sellout crowds this weekend. Traffic will be very noticeable heading into Seattle, especially in the afternoons. Give yourself plenty of extra travel time should you be heading there, to the Reign game, to AEW or any other event in Seattle.
· All lanes of northbound I-5 will close overnight by Koontz Road near Napavine for bridge girder demolition work Saturday night to Sunday morning. There will be a signed detour available, but plan for added travel times. And for folks heading to any of the concerts in Ridgefield, on top of that closure be aware there’s ongoing bridge work and lane closures on northbound I-5 between La Center & Woodland. While most of this work will affect folks leaving the shows, please drive carefully along the detour and in our work zones.
Even as the days get shorter and the major construction season winds down, we still have many work zones out there. Please remember if you drive through one to stay calm, be kind to our crews, pay attention to your surroundings and slow down. If you’re headed to local events, consider riding transit, cycling, scootering, walking, rolling or carpooling/ridesharing. As always, our real-time travel map on our website and mobile app is there to help!

We are a lab in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at UW Seattle and we're looking for adults (ages 18+) to participate in some research studies.
In general, our lab recruits adults who stutter and adults who do NOT stutter for a variety of experiments in which you'll be compensated $20/hr. We can reimburse for street parking and we will provide you with a free hearing screening as part of the experiment.
Most of our studies require simply sitting in front of a microphone and reading words or sentences off a screen. Some studies involve measuring your brain function while you wear an electrode cap (just like a swim cap). We have various safety protocols in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
If you are interested, or have any questions at all, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Colorful advertisement recruiting participants for stuttering research. There is a cartoon drawing of two faceless people talking to each other. Much of the same information is given in the text post.
Hey! Partner and I will be doing our own bump photoshoot and are looking for a very accessible and pretty place to do so, thinking of something like a sunflower patch or a forest area with lots of greenery, anything that could give a nice depth of field to the photos with nature background.
Accessibility is key because I cannot move around too much because of huge bump 🐣💖.
Thinking of bridle trails state park for now, we've never been and would appreciate insight into the nicest entryway, but also all suggestions welcome and encouraged!!!
