TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Monday updates, notes

April 21, 2014 at 6:30 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 4 Comments

(Latest bridge and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Monday traffic watch begins. Note the earlier crash on Sylvan Way; we won’t be able to check back for a while, so please let us know (206-293-6302) if you drive through the area and it’s still blocked. Meantime, transportation-news notes:

SPRING BREAK, PART 2: While Seattle Public Schools had last week off, this week is spring break for local parochial schools, so you’ll still see different traffic patterns and more kids out and about than you usually do on weekdays.

SW GENESEE IS OPEN AGAIN: Just in case you hadn’t been by SW Genesee east of Avalon Way since last week’s concrete-panel-replacement work, we doublechecked on Sunday and it’s all done; the hill is reopened.

HIGHWAY 99 LANE CLOSURES: Just north of downtown, tonight and tomorrow night, as explained here.

2 DAYS LEFT TO VOTE ON PROP 1: Tuesday night is the deadline. This morning, bus riders in The Junction will see some campaigning; our Sunday night story explains.

10:07 AM UPDATE: County Executive Dow Constantine, talking with bus riders before catching RapidRide downtown:

Separate Election Eve update to come later.

  1. looking ahead to tomorrow’s traffic: anyone know where Obama’s gonna land (Paine field in Everett maybe?) and /or when ? I have a meeting in north Seattle and not sure if i need to plan to leave earlier or not to account for I-5 closures.
    trying to check Seattle Times didn’t help much.

  2. Sam, will update as soon as we find it. Am out by the bay right now and seeing a hovering Coast Guard cutter which I imagine is another part of the advance preps – along with all the aircraft activity we reported on Saturday … TR

  3. Update – the flight advisories are the only hard-and-fast publicly viewable info so far (I checked the White House schedule and it doesn’t list his plan yet) and they indicate he is flying into Snohomish County. http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_4_5799.html
