TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Wednesday watch

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

6:34 AM: Good morning. If you use 15th SW south of Roxbury, including via bus, note that a big early-morning fire response was still blocking the road as of just after 6 am. We’ll be checking back on that after sunrise. Otherwise, no incidents in/from West Seattle and vicinity.

ROAD-WORK ALERT TODAY: SW 106th/107th reconfiguration between 16th and 27th continues today.

ROAD-WORK ALERT FOR THIS WEEKEND: WSDOT is resuming repaving work on Highway 509 south of here and will have lane closures all weekend.

6:46 AM: Metro says 15th SW is open again.

8:06 AM: Eastbound bridge trouble reported by comment and text – thanks! Bus lane reported blocked by cars/bus collision. Also, SDOT reports a crash on NB 99 at Lander.

    Car vs bus vs another car in the bus lane at the top of the entrance from avalon. Blocking bus lane. No apparent injuries.

    Has anyone seen SPD enforcing the bus lane in the last few months? Either on Avalon or Spokane ST or on the bridge?

      On the bridge just yesterday, according to a reader’s comment on Twitter.

      There were several officers that went whizzing past this morning and didn’t pay any attention but that was likely due to the accident. The buses eventually moved into the left lane on Avalon and just cut all the cars in the bus lane off by turning in front of them at the entrance to the bridge. I may have cheered a little on the inside when I saw what they were doing. On a slightly separate issue my recurring thought this morning was “Where can I send the check monthly to make the light rail expansion happen NOW?”

Sorry, comment time is over.
