7:19 AM: After a rainy night, the most recent alert for this morning is no surprise – KING 5 traffic reporter Tracy Taylor tweets that there’s “one lane blocked each direction on Highway 99 near Battery Street Tunnel due to standing water.”

    Just got a text that the lanes have reopened. Will swap out the camera. Weird, that keeps happening intermittently.
