TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Friday notes; what’s coming up

(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).

    It looks like the animated GIF is for the distributor lanes closure, not the 99 closure?

    thanks for updating. (I was so confused. in my reader, the gif was still with the 99 closure note- glad I clicked over to check)

    There are not enough cars and they are moving to fast to be an accurate representation of traffic flow in that gif.

    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.

Sorry, comment time is over.
