(WS bridge and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Nothing unusual on routes through/from West Seattle right now.
ROAD WORK: If weather permits, the state plans to close northbound 99 tonight between the West Seattle Bridge and the stadium zone, 10 pm-5 am.
TRANSPORTATION NEWS: County Council members announced in dueling news releases Monday that they have taken action described as “sending back to committee” or “canceling” the February 2015 Metro bus cuts (which were to include killing Route 22), pending the outcome of the county budget process. Seattle Times (WSB partner) transportation reporter Mike Lindblom sorts it out, including possible implications for the transit-funding ballot measure you’ll be considering in a few weeks.
7:02 AM: Via Twitter, @cdawg2610 reports a possible stalled car on the eastbound bridge by the 99 overpass.
7:47 AM: The stalled vehicle is still there – in the left lane, per SDOT. You can also see it (as of this writing) on the WSDOT Spokane St. camera. The “low bridge” has just opened for marine traffic, so that’s not a good option right at the moment. The 1st Avenue S. bridge is showing its share of brake lights.
8:12 AM: SDOT just tweeted that the stalled vehicle has been cleared, but as always, “residual backups” remain.
8:42 AM: We’re headed downtown for a story this morning, so we’re trying the “back route.” After 25 minutes from Upper Fauntleroy, headed to the 1st Avenue S. Bridge via Highland Park and then 4th Avenue S., we are almost to 4th/Spokane.
