6:59 AM: The fog rolled in very early this morning and is still here – so keep that in mind as you get ready to head out. Here’s one warning, via Twitter:


No other challenges so far.

8:15 AM: Might be a little bumpy on the 1st Avenue South Bridge – a crash reported southbound:


Speaking of bridges – we covered last night’s South Park Bridge update meeting for our partner site The South Park News; here’s the story.

8:23 AM: 1st Avenue South Bridge problem is now down to 1 lane, per WSDOT.

5:15 PM: Traffic’s ugly out there right now, according to multiple sources: Eastbound West Seattle Bridge and surface 1st Avenue have both been mentioned. Nothing obvious on the 911 log at this point. The city’s advisory mentions only one event of note tonight: Red Hot Chili Peppers at KeyArena.

  2. A quick note on the real-time signs at California and Fauntleroy (Morgan Junction). They have power and connectivity, but are not yet showing accurate information at all times. We apologize for the confusion this is causing. We’re trying to fix the problem as fast as possible, and are troubleshooting several issues. We will keep you posted on progress and thanks for your patience.

  3. Left South Lake Union by bus at 5pm. No wait for transfer, and we are STILL downtown. Avoid it if you can!!

  4. I had a great commute home, which makes me feel for those stuck in horrible traffic. I believe the 120 I caught left a little early. We left downtown with maybe 15-20 people on board. When I got off, 4-5 were left.

    Also, if you took the 120 this evening and lost a checkbook, I gave it to the driver. I didn’t look inside so I have no info.
