TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Thursday edition

(SDOT MAP with travel times/video links; is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE)

7:02 AM: No current incidents in/from West Seattle.

Weather-wise, it’s a little murky this morning, and the weather alert for tomorrow was upgraded overnight to a Wind Advisory, 1 am-10 am Friday.

Advance alerts: The SDOT roundup includes the St. Patrick’s Day Parade downtown on Saturday afternoon (local schools’ bands are part of it!) and the St. Patrick’s Day Dash downtown on Sunday.

8:59 AM: And one more advance reminder … we “spring forward” early Sunday, one hour, to start Daylight Saving Time.

9 AM: Traffic note too – police are being dispatched to NB 99 at Lander for a reportedly stalled vehicle.

    More people shifting to early schedules, it appears.

    6:40 departure from home use to ensure – 90% of the time – a fairly wide open commute.  No more!

    Looks like a need to adjust to 6:20!

    Something is definitely wrong on the eastbound bridge right now. Starting to pile up back up the hill to 35th.

      Thanks – aside from the aforementioned Viaduct stall, nothing on the 911 log and nothing from SDOT …

    Why is it that almost an hour after you reported the stalled vehicle on 99, it is still there?!?!?! C’mon! Push the dang thing out of the way.

      Yeah, makes no sense. I’ve heard of stalls that take 2+ hours to move/clear. Meanwhile 10k + people suffer heading east from WS or north on I5/99. Nothing new unfortunately. Ridiculous.

    This was a stalled food truck on the 99 curves by the stadium sloping up to the viaduct. I don’t get why they didn’t just push the truck out of the way a few feet to where they have a shoulder. Commute from Gatewood to SLU took 1hr 10 mins today. This was the cause of the backup all the way into WS. Awesome.

      I see that food truck all the time on my commute. I’m surprised it took this long for it to run down. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
