West Seattle traffic alert: Crash affecting both sides of bridge

February 5, 2013 at 10:46 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 7 Comments

10:48 PM: A crash in the westbound lanes of the West Seattle Bridge is affecting the eastbound side too, according to James, who just called with a report: He says the jersey barrier has been pushed into the eastbound lanes. At least one vehicle is reported to have hit the barrier. And per the scanner, westbound traffic will be diverted onto Admiral. More as we get it.

11:51 PM: Still diverting traffic westbound at last report; we’ll update if/when we hear it’s open again. No details on crash cause or injuries.

3:22 AM: The bridge is now clear, per Valvashon in the comment section. We’ll follow up with SFD later this morning regarding injuries/hospital transport.


  1. Yes, just came by this westbound, all lanes closed westbound, forced to exit Admiral/Avalon.

  4. That must have been for the jersey-barrier repair. Radio traffic on this evaporated so if anyone does go through and notice both directions clear, please advise! – TR
