TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Roxbury fire; Water Taxi out of service; more

Different format as we launch today’s traffic/transit tracker because we already have problems:

6:05 AM – Crews are mopping up at the scene of the house fire we’ve been covering. Buses are being rerouted too, including RapidRide and Sound Transit 560, according to text alerts from Metro. (Update: Metro just texted at 6:32 am that Route 22 is back to normal on Roxbury. Waiting for word on other words.)

7:15 AM – Just checked back. WESTBOUND Roxbury is fine now. Eastbound still is blocked by fire/sheriff’s vehicles.

7:50 AM: Route 21, RapidRide, ST 560 also back to normal on Roxbury, per text alerts.

ONGOING: NO WEST SEATTLE WATER TAXI THIS MORNING: As announced last night; service is expected to be available this afternoon, but NOT this morning.

BRIDGE CAM: In case you’re looking for it:

(Live view from the east-facing WS Bridge camera; see other cameras on the WSB Traffic page)

    Per Captain Dan the Vashon route will be getting a Victoria Clipper this afternoon and West Seattle will use the Melissa Ann while the Rachel Marie is repaired. No word on what the issue is or ETA.

      Thanks, Maggie. We’ll be checking in with King County DOT later in the day – they are pretty proactive about getting the word out too; I saw the text alert first, published this, and then about 20 minutes later, the media folks sent a note to be sure us media types got the word – Tracy

    Light Rail stopped running into downtown tunnel. We were told there is a blockage, but buses are still using tunnel.

Sorry, comment time is over.
