(Latest bridge and Viaduct views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
No major trouble reported through, or out of, West Seattle so far. So we start by looking ahead:

THIS WEEKEND: The I-5 expansion-joint work resumes; tonight until Monday morning, WSDOT will close up to 3 northbound collector-distributor lanes downtown, and here’s WSDOT’s animated GIF to show how that’s supposed to work:

NEXT WEEK: Highway 99 will close both ways between East Marginal Way and Atlantic four times next week, late night/early morning – details here:

8:05 AM: Still a relatively quiet commute per all the ways we monitor (including emergency radio, 911 log, Twitter, transportation agencies, and cameras).

  5. Unless, MyEye…

    I’m thinking if they made a video game of that with bus-lane violators and zipper-cheaters the targets, somebody could make some coin. Be therapeutic if nothing else, eh?

    How about points earned for making a commute via alternative modalities with various hazards and mishaps to dodge? Best PM route for bikes for additional rounds?

    Ok. Maybe not.
