Good morning! Quiet on the roads here and beyond so far.

TRAFFIC NOTES: No major West Seattle road work announced for this week. SODO/Pioneer Square drivers/riders, take note that the Mariners are home all week (7:10 pm game tonight).

7:18 AM – ‘LOW BRIDGE’ ALERT: Via scanner – what the dispatcher described as a “disabled tractor-trailer” on the westbound low bridge.

7:44 AM: That’s clear now, according to SDOT.


  1. Very slow on low bridge east bound too. Double container rig stopped westbound approaching “high” rise.

  3. I just saw one of those big honkin’ tractor-trailer-size tow trucks go up there, and they still had the east approach (westbound) flared off and nothing was coming down the other way either…. he’s gonna be a few.

  4. I came down the hill on Olsen toward 509 about an hour ago and the right lane was completely blocked by an accident. There were a couple ambulances and cops, and the cars hadn’t been moved yet. It looked like they may have been getting ready to clear it, so it could be gone now.
