Update: 3:09pm – Metro says that Route 27 has returned to its normal route
We just got a note from Metro that there’s a significant temporary re-route of the #27 bus, and it’s missing the stops that lead down to the lake on Lake Dell Ave. The cause is due to a tree that has been blown down across the road on E. Alder.
It’s only making stops west of 32nd on Yesler, or south of Dearborn on Lakeside Ave S, so you’ll either have to walk up the hill or several blocks south to catch the bus if you live around Frink or Leschi parks.
Metro is waiting for SDOT and/or property owners to clean things up, so the duration of the outage is unknown.
Here’s a map of the affected area, shown in red:
