I’ve been trying to find the best times to get in and out of West Seattle. I’m sure the transportation folks have the traffic volume analysis for the West Seattle Bridge but I certainly can’t find it. Does anyone know where this information might be hiding out there?
but my experience is that if you leave home after 6:45 am on weekdays, you’ll be in slow west seattle bridge traffic, and it usually doesn’t let up until 9:30 or 10.
coming home, it obviously depends on which route you take.
if i’m not on 99 or I-5 headed for the west seattle bridge by 3 pm, i’ll use surface streets like first avenue to the bridge, second avenue to the columbia street entrance on 99, or columbian way. but if you’re south of downtown, traffic into west seattle is pretty easy, even during rush hour.
