Late-night traffic alert: Avoid the eastbound West Seattle Bridge

Just got a text and phone call that the eastbound bridge is blocked, all traffic stopped, around the Nucor plant. The 911 log shows a crash report a while ago, but the Fire Department involvement in it was “closed” – checking to see what more we can find out, but in the meantime, if you have to head east, don’t try to get on The Bridge before Delridge. 12:33 AM UPDATE: In comments, Diane says it now looks like things are cleared up. 7:46 AM NOTE: Unrelated crash that we didn’t get to before the call “closed” – a car went down an embankment on Pigeon Point in the 1 am hour – there’s a bit about it here.

    I just went out to look at the bridge; looks like cars are moving east ok

    Thanks. I’ve been listening to the scanner but haven’t heard updates on this – and the cameras aren’t back in action yet (gotta follow up with SDOT on that) – TR

    The accident looked bad. I happened to be driving westbound seconds after it happened & called 911. The car was upsidedown & saw someone was out of the car. I hope everyone involved is okay.

    No medic unit was ever summoned – which usually means no major injuries (unless it’s fatal, but that wouldn’t have been the case here – it would have been closed for many hours to investigate) – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
