    1st Ave northbound appears to be down to one lane only b/c of construction…at least in front of Starbucks. Sounds like a tough commute this morning!

    Man, yeah it’s a tough one today. Our bus is creeping along 99….it sure didn’t take long for summer traffic volumes to disappear did it? Back to the 9 month grind.

    Great news…the crash is probably halfway cleared. It’s On the flat part before the incline approach before you reach SB HQ bldg. Free & clear & fast now!

    On a 54 bus. The offramps to 1st and 99 are both backed up to about the Delridge onramp. Stay home if you can.

    Only two cars left. One on a tow truck.

    SDOT reports the accident is now cleared up.

    My morning commute wasn’t the greatest…

    Thanks for sharing traffic info – it’s going to be increasingly important as we get into fall/winter – TR

    No wrecks on the bay this morning; water taxi had smooth sailing!

    Word of warning…don’t forget the SEAHAWKS play DENVER at 7:00pm 1st Ave will most likely be a parking lot.

    also the rally at Westlake @ 6pm…the commute home on the bus should be hellious…

    **ALERT!** It is important to note that the Seahawks play OAKLAND and not DENVER tonight as reported above! Repeat: The Seahawks play Oakland, not Denver tonight!

    Carry on.

Sorry, comment time is over.
