Video: First pm commute on Highway 99′s narrowed ‘Timber Bridge’

That’s the view from our 4:15 pm drive on the newly narrowed ‘Timber Bridge’ section of southbound Highway 99 south of the West Seattle Bridge. It became stop-and-go right before the WS Bridge exit and even came to a halt for a moment or two. Past the bridge, the outside lane is the through lane. (added) Right after publishing this, we got a text from Michelle that it’s backed up to Lander. Adding the “live” camera at Lander:

  1. Thanks for the great perspective on yet another traffic challenge West Seattle commuters must endure.

    And thanks also for being a FREE media source for valuable news and information. Don’t know how we existed prior to the WSB.

  5. I left downtown just after 5:00pm today and it wasn’t bad at all. Slowdown where the lanes merge into one, but no worse than merging onto 99 from the Columbia on-ramp. Thank you for the stories and follow-ups on this. Very much appreciated.

  6. Wow! It was smooth sailing at 4:00! There was a land rover that was rear ended. The driver was out of her vehicle and talking to the driver of the SUV that hit her. No visible damage that I saw as I zoomed by, but it did cause a bit of a back up as people were lining up behind them thinking it was the bridge work.
