TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday updates; fuel spill on the bridge

(Latest bridge and Viaduct views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
6:59 AM: All’s relatively well so far on the routes through/out of West Seattle. One big reminder for today, if you are driving the eastbound bridge between rush hours: Eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct surface-repair work is scheduled for 10 am-4 pm. We also updated the SW Charlestown closure on Wednesday – the city has changed the detour plan a bit; here’s the latest.

BRIDGE PROBLEM REPORTED, 7:56 AM: Trouble on the eastbound bridge and a text we just received might explain why: A truck is reported to have leaked/spilled fuel from the “Delridge merge” to 1st Avenue South. Fire crews are on the scene.

8:22 AM: The fire call for the spill has closed, and SDOT tells us via Twitter that it wasn’t major:

    I’m sitting on Delridge and we are parked. Why they let the swing bridge open at this hour of the morning, I have no idea. It instantly creates a nightmare traffic jam.

      Scooterista – we just got a text about another problem that may be to blame, a fuel spill or leak from a truck that reportedly went from Delridge to 1st Ave. So. on the bridge.

Sorry, comment time is over.
