(WS Bridge and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
We start the morning with two alerts for today, both in the Alki area: 61st/Stevens will be closed for a while this morning because of the totem-pole ceremony outside the Log House Museum, with hundreds of people expected to fill the street. The event is planned for 10:30-11 am, but you’d want to avoid the area for at least a half-hour either side of that, maybe a bit more. … The other Alki alert is for paving work on Alki Avenue SW continuing today between Bonair and 53rd SW.
Then starting late tonight (around 10 pm), southbound Highway 99 will close for the weekend between the Battery Street Tunnel and us. PLUS – two lanes of northbound 5 will close all weekend right by the bridge for expansion-joint work, AND the 520 bridge is closing too – it’s all detailed here. And the traditional “what ELSE is going on around the area this weekend?” preview is here.
Finally – the June “service change” for Metro starts Saturday and is explained here (major West Seattle effect – some p.m. changes on Route 21).
