TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Getting around on Monday

April 28, 2014 at 7:02 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 5 Comments

The “live” view above is the eastbound West Seattle Bridge (update: most local SDOT cams are out – the 35th/Fauntleroy bridge entrance is an exception, so we’ve substituted it); below, northbound 99 at the south end of the remaining elevated Alaskan Way Viaduct:

Any time of day/night, you can find more cameras (update: when they’re working!), and other info, on the WSB Traffic page. As we head for the heart of the morning commute, a crash just reported on northbound I-5 in the collector-distributor lanes approaching James, but the vehicles were quickly cleared to the shoulder. Everybody’s back from spring break now – parochial schools were out last week, public schools the week before that – so traffic is at as full volume as it gets.

7:47 AM NOTE: We just went out to doublecheck the traffic signals that were flashing for up to 6+ hours on Sunday; all appear to be working now. But in comments, “Trickycoolj” warns that 4th/East Marginal is flashing in the Georgetown area.

8:11 AM NOTE: Also in comments, “Azimuth” points out that most traffic cameras are out. Looking for relevant replacements and checking to see what’s up.


  1. For those commuting to the Georgetown area: 4th and E. Marginal signal is flashing.

  2. Thanks. We just went out to doublecheck all the West Seattle ones that were problematic yesterday and they were OK – I did hear scanner traffic last night about malfunctions in other areas; about to follow up with SDOT.

  3. Almost all of the traffic cameras are down. That’s rather inconvenient…

  4. Thanks, Azimuth. I hadn’t looked at the Traffic page lately but you’re right. Looking for a substitute…

  5. Certainly not your fault WSB!

    I use that SeaCam page somebody made a while back and not one camera in west Seattle works.
