West Seattle traffic alert: Water break closes 30th SW

Thanks to Lawrence for the tip: 30th SW between North Delridge and High Point is closed about a block south of the turn at SW Brandon (update: 30th/Findlay, to be specific – here’s a map) while Seattle Public Utilities works on a water break. The crew at the scene told us a few minutes ago that they will likely be out there for a few more hours. No word on what caused the problem, but one possible effect to be aware of overnight and tomorrow morning: The road’s wet in spots and could ice over. (The SPU crew was in fact throwing some salt onto the road when we were there.)

    Can we get a more detailed address or cross street? I’m not home but live on 30th in High Point!

      I couldn’t read the cross-street sign, it’s totally faded, but I’m looking it up to add a Google Map. The crew is working at the location I mentioned – one block south of Brandon on 30th. It’s on a hill so the water went downhill (north). – Tracy
      .
      (edit) The cross-street at which the crew is working appears to be Findlay, if Google Maps are not missing something between Brandon and Findlay. I don’t know how far up 30th is blocked but I’d imagine it’s just far enough to keep people from finding themselves at the closure without any place to detour.

    Wonder if the Comcast issue is related…?

      I don’t know how much undergrounding Comcast does, but their outages do often seem to dovetail with other utilities, especially electric.

    There is a locate crew that finds all utilities to they don’t run into interference with other utilities.

Sorry, comment time is over.
