Meantime, the countdown continues to the Delridge Way repaving project that begins Thursday. It’s expected to take all year, but will be done in phases; the Phase 1 zone is between Trenton and Henderson. Here’s the official website; while SDOT plans to maintain northbound traffic flow on Delridge during the project, each phase will have southbound detours.
7:44 AM: Chris warns in comments that it’s slow going on the bridge.
8:28 AM: As also noted in comments, there’s a problem on Third downtown. Via Twitter, Seattle Police report it’s a crash involving a bus and a pedestrian. The Traffic Collision Investigation Squad is there, SPD tweeted, and that usually means an hours-long closure while they do their work.
8:40 AM: Back here on the peninsula, we’re heading over to check out a crash reported at 35th and Barton.
8:55 AM: One car, not causing any notable trouble at that busy intersection.
5:33 PM: Be careful out there – winds are kicking up big time; there’s an advisory till 4 am.
