TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday travels; one more 99 closure; bicycle-car collision

(Latest bridge and Viaduct views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Quiet morning for traffic so far (we’ve been watching for the past two hours). Rain is returning later today, forecasters say.

On the road-work schedule, 9 pm-5 am will bring the final scheduled overnight Highway 99 closure to finish the Spokane St. Overcrossing bridge replacement south of the West Seattle Bridge. The closure is again scheduled for both directions of 99 between East Marginal Way and S. Atlantic – specifics here (note that the start time might not be exact – we were on the bridge around 9:15 last night and the exit to 99 was still open). We’ll be verifying with WSDOT today that when this night of work is over, they still plan to fully open the overcrossing, which means four lanes both ways after more than a year of work.

7:55 AM: See comments regarding an incident at Marginal/Spokane. All we know is that the medical call for that is already closed; we will check with SFD and SPD.

8:39 AM: SPD Det. Mark Jamieson confirms a bicycle and car collided. He says the rider was not seriously hurt. (added) SFD spokesperson Kyle Moore confirms that medics on the scene described the injuries as minor, and says the rider, a man in his 30s, was taken to a hospital to be checked out.

    There was a cyclist hit on Marginal at Spokane at approximately 7:30 this morning. Firetrucks and ambulance responding.

      The medical call there is already closed – I hope that is good news.

    I drove by that this morning. The bike was under the car and several people were standing around man laying in his back a few feet away. Really hoping to hear how’s he’s doing!

      I’m checking.

    Glad he’s all right. I ride through that area regularly and it’s a tricky intersection to navigate.

Sorry, comment time is over.
