Happy Friday! It’s Day 1 of West Seattle Summer Fest in The Junction: The tents are up, the streets are closed – specifically, California between Edmunds and Genesee (though east-west traffic on Oregon is allowed through) and Alaska between 44th and 42nd. Bus reroute specifics (each link is a PDF from Metro explaining stop and route changes):
Once the festival begins at 10 am, we’ll be covering it live. First, the rest of the commute:
(WS bridge and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
We’re monitoring as always; if you see/hear something, let us know – but not until you can safely/legally do so (if you are a passenger, or once you have reached your destination) – text or voice any time, 206-293-6302.
P.S. One major weekend closure in the region – the 520 bridge closes again late tonight through early Monday.
