While we keep watch on morning traffic, closures to remind you about:

SW GENESEE ALL WEEK: The SW Genesee hill east of Avalon Way is scheduled to be closed for concrete-panel replacement work. Here’s the Metro Route 50 reroute info.

ALKI AVENUE SATURDAY MORNING: The Earth Day 5K on Saturday morning will close Alki Avenue until about 11:30 am – it’s been a while since we wrote about it, and it’s new to West Seattle this year, so we’re starting the reminders now.


  1. There is a stalled semi on the on ramp from Delridge to the upper bridge. He’s off to the side and you can get past but be careful.

  2. Glad to see SPD out with some enforcement of the bus line on the bridge this morning. It is badly needed.

  3. Ugh!

    Yes, it absolutely IS badly needed but why during spring break???? Just like last year, this guy is bound and determined to slow bridge traffic down on one of the few light traffic weeks we get.

    Come back next week when we a slow anyway! You will probably nab even more cheaters……

    Please note: I am NOT saying they should not ticket the bus lane cheaters, but PLEASE do it any other week but this one. Traffic is light during spring break and this actually forces everything to a crawl……
