U.S. 2 trestle scheduled to close
The westbound U.S. 2 trestle is scheduled to close this weekend, from 7 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday for repaving. Wet weather could delay the work, as it did the first scheduled time in May.
Other tentative closure dates: June 22-25, June 29-July 2, July 13-16, July 20-23 and, now, Aug. 4-6 to make up for May’s missed work.
For this weekend’s detour, 20th Street SE will be reversed to carry westbound traffic only. It will return drivers to westbound U.S. 2 just before the I-5 interchange.

Dewey Decimal system, so tasty

Your mission is to decorate your cupcake using inspiration from that section of the library. Will you get 510 (math)? Or maybe 780 (music) or 950 (Asian history)? You won’t know until you show up.
Registration is required.
