TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Drenched Wednesday

(Latest bridge and Viaduct views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
At least at the moment, the rain’s a lot lighter than it was just a few hours ago. But the overnight deluge has left “standing water” – aka big puddles – in many a place, so please be careful, however you’re getting around.

I-5 WORK THIS WEEKEND: More expansion-joint (earthquake safety) work is happening late Friday through early Monday – this time, resulting in collector-distributor lane closures on northbound I-5; full details here.

7:43 AM UPDATE: Thanks to the texter (206-293-6302 any time) who reports the roadway is “totally under water” on West Marginal Way SW, just north of Highland Park Way.

  1. Surprised at the amount of standing water in the left lane EB on the Spokane viaduct. Needs better drainage or “by design”?

  2. Robert it’s the same going west on Spokane viaduct, left and right lane. I always slow down because I know it’s there. Still it is very unsafe.
