TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Thursday watch

7:01 AM: Good morning! No incidents in/from West Seattle reported so far. Weather-wise, it’s even colder this morning – low 20s right now in Seattle, and the colder-than-normal (but dry) weather will continue at least through tomorrow.

ROAD CLOSURE ALERTS: Four closures coming up in the days/nights ahead, as published here last night – two closures of northbound Highway 99, Friday night into Saturday morning and Saturday night into Sunday morning, and then two involving part of the west end of the West Seattle Bridge, Sunday night into Monday morning and Monday night into Tuesday morning. Full details of both sets are here.

8:59 AM: Per scanner, police are responding to a crash reported in the West Seattle HS area (3000 block of California). No one hurt, no traffic-blocking, but the emergency response could change that, so we’re mentioning it.

10 AM: If you’re heading toward the Viaduct downtown, avoid the 1st/Columbia entrance – there is an incident there reported to involve vehicles and a seriously injured pedestrian.

    Right lane heading down Admiral Way is icy, looks like a water main broke.

    Anybody else get the Metro alert at 6:52 today that the 5:54 route 56 run didn’t happen?  That’s very helpful for them to point it out an hour later….

      Sorry, I missed that one, but I see it’s in the list of today’s texts on my phone, and they tweeted it a minute earlier.

      I got it when you did and I feared it was a typo and that the bus I walked out to was cancelled.  Alas, my bus showed up, a bit late.
