Another reminder: Eastbound West Seattle Bridge ramps to I-5, Beacon Hill closed till Tuesday

That’s the traffic cam looking eastbound on the West Seattle Bridge; no problems so far, but tomorrow might be a different story, since the ramps to I-5 and Beacon Hill will remain closed for repair work until early TUESDAY morning. This camera shows part of the work zone:

The repair work is for WSDOT’s I-5 Spokane Street Interchange Bridge Repair project, which continues into spring with periodic closures, though never the same spot twice. This weekend, if you don’t exit to northbound 99 or to 1st Avenue South, you will be diverted off the eastbound bridge at 4th Avenue South. The westbound side is NOT affected. Detours and project details are here; more traffic cameras are here.

  1. I’ve already said this on another article but just in case someone with some connection to these projects are listening… Closing a route during the day that is the only viable connection to an entire area is just stupid. If, and I say that with much doubt, this construction closure was completely necessary during the day, you’d think that SDOT would at least put a condition in the contract that the contractor pay for some police officers to direct traffic at the costco off-ramp and/or change the timing of the light. Does anyone care about this stuff? Just a little forethought would save thousands of people an extra 10-15min.
