5:59 AM: If the forecast comes true, it’ll be soggy instead of foggy by tomorrow morning’s commute. But for now, one more round of murk, with a dense-fog advisory in effect till noon. Plus, a traffic-alert for tonight: Southbound 99 is closed again from Battery St. Tunnel to West Seattle Bridge, 10 pm-5 am, for SODO overpass work.
8:10 AM: Last week, you’ll recall, Metro went public with results of its online and in-person surveys of West Seattle riders, and crowded buses comprised the top complaint. Christian just sent an inside-RapidRide photo from about half an hour ago:
“There were more people standing then sitting,” Christian noted.
9:03 AM: If you take the 1st Avenue Bridge northbound from southeast West Seattle (or points further south), heads up from WSDOT via Twitter:
Heads up, crews are closing the right lane of NB SR 99 on the 1st Ave Bridge starting. …now, until about noon.

1:34 PM UPDATE: WSDOT says the work’s not over yet – the bridge had to open for marine traffic, among other complications. They’re now hoping to be done by mid-afternoon.
