West Seattle traffic alert update: Southbound 99 crash cleared

Thanks to Greta for mentioning this in a comment on the daily traffic roundup – there’s a multi-car crash on southbound 99 before the West Seattle Bridge exit. So if you haven’t left yet, consider going another way TFN.

7:14 PM UPDATE: SDOT says the crash is cleared.

    Our metro bus driver (55) says he’s on reroute down 1st Ave.

    2-car rear end accident blocking left lane. Tow trucks just arrived on scene.

    One option is 1st Ave. South and use the on-ramp to the bridge at Spokane St. The 21 local bus just did that with no problem.

    No backup getting onto bridge just now on C line.

    So glad metro put that reroute in before the 57 got on 99!

Sorry, comment time is over.
