Today’s traffic watch begins. And as always, we have reminders:

ONE WEEK OF I-90 LANE CLOSURES … westbound 90, starting this Friday – details here.

WEST SEATTLE GRAND PARADE CLOSURES: Saturday morning, California will be closed south of Admiral, all the way to Edmunds, for the parade. Staging zones will be on side streets along both ends of the route. We’ll be previewing the parade all week – here’s our “countdown” update from last night.

THAT HIGHWAY 99 CLOSURE IN AUGUST … if you missed the new details made public last Friday, here’s our report.

8:21 AM: No trouble reported because of it yet but fog is drifting through and we’re hearing the occasional foghorn in the distance. But the forecast says it WILL make way for sunshine again later, with a high in the 80s.

9:09 AM: Ferries on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run are delayed because of the fog – 15 to 30 minutes, says WSF.

11:08 AM: Eddie points out in comments that California is narrowed again today between Alaska and Edmunds because of street work related to the 4730 California project at midblock – one lane each way, no parking.


  1. Thank you for the traffic information. The Force will be with you, always.

  2. Any idea what the I-90 closure will do to I-5 North traffic (from West Sea bridge through Lynwood) during commute?

  3. California between Alaska and Edmunds is one lane each way and no parking. Big deep hole being dug just south of the crosswalk.

  4. Thank you! We noticed some work yesterday, guess it’s continuing – I need to nag the contractor to get us back on their alert list.

  5. @West Sea Neighbor: I imagine it will have little effect if any on I-5 NB traffic because the I-90 closure is only on the westbound direction.
