5:44 AM: We start the week with not only continuing cold temperatures – watch out for icy spots – but also two traffic alerts:
DELRIDGE REPAVING: First full week of Phase 1 work, between Trenton and Henderson. Northbound traffic remains open; southbound is detoured, 24/7.
SOUTHBOUND 99 OVERNIGHT CLOSURES: This is the first of three weeks during which WSDOT will close southbound Highway 99 between the Battery Street Tunnel and West Seattle Bridge Monday through Thursday nights, 10 pm-5 am each night, and a shorter stretch of one northbound lane, while they continue to work on the new SODO overpass.
7:17 AM: In comments, 33Pete says the hill down to/up from Harbor Avenue at the north end of California SW is closed because of ice.
7:28 AM: And Metro has just sent a text alert that Route 775, the Water Taxi shuttle in that area, is rerouted and not using the hill – if you’re northbound, it says, use the California/Hill stop; southbound, it says, use the Seacrest stop.
9:56 AM: Another text alert from Metro says Route 775 is now back in service – so we’ll take that to mean the hill is open to all traffic.
