3 weeks of evening lane closures on Mercer Street

Queen Anne residents beware! Last night the Seattle Department of Transportation began construction at Mercer Street and Ninth Avenue North that will result in closure of up to three lanes. The lanes will be closed from 7:oo p.m. until 5:00 a.m. for up to three weeks in order to install underground utilities. This activity is part of the massive Mercer Corridor Project underway in Seattle. For an update on the project, click here.

Coe Cares Bake Sale This Sunday

The Coe Cares project from Coe Elementary is holding a bake sale this Sunday to raise funds for Japanese relief efforts after the recent tsunami.   Proceeds will go the non-profit organization Doctors Without Borders.  The bake sale will run from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm and baked goods are still needed. So if you’ve got grandma’s secret chocolate chip cookie recipe, put it good use and help to aid those in need.  If you simply want to buy baked goods or make donations, visit the sale in front of the Queen Anne Avenue Starbucks this Sunday, March 20th.
