TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Friday watch, with Veterans Day changes, plus bridge, 99 closures tonight

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

6:56 AM: Good morning. No incidents reported in/from West Seattle so far.

VETERANS DAY CHANGES: No school; no King County Water Taxi. Metro is on a “reduced weekday” schedule but most routes are not affected. (Also note, today is NOT a free-parking day in pay-station neighborhoods.)

CLOSURES TONIGHT: If you’ll be out late tonight/early tomorrow, you need to know about two closures starting just before midnight – the Fauntleroy Expressway end of the West Seattle Bridge (scheduled to end by 7 am), and the Battery Street Tunnel (scheduled to end by 5 am).

8:57 AM: Another incident-free commute. Any time you see/hear about something your West Seattle neighbors should be aware of, please alert us (if you can do so safely/legally), text or voice, at our 24/7 hotline, 206-293-6302 – thank you!

    Thank you WSB! Parked on-street Downtown assuming it was a free day. Came into work and perused my usual news sites (including WSB, of course) and saw your note on “today is NOT a free parking day.” That saved me a hefty ticket!

      Confusingly, SDOT tweeted last night that it is not a parking holiday, tweeted this morning that it is, and has not yet replied to requests for clarification. Given what the website says, I wouldn’t risk it.
