No traffic trouble in, or outbound from, West Seattle so far. Today’s notes:
VIADUCT/99 CLOSURES THIS WEEKEND: Between the West Seattle Bridge and Battery Street Tunnel, Highway 99 will be closed 6 am-6 pm Saturday and Sunday for its semiannual inspection. But it’ll be closed all weekend, late Friday night until early Monday morning, from the BST to Valley Street. The multipart closure is explained here.
BRIDGE STOP FOR BICYCLE RIDERS: West Seattle Cyclery is under the West Seattle Bridge again this morning until 9 am “with hot coffee, drinks, and snacks. We will also have service equipment to help with any minor repairs.”
7:25 AM: Per SDOT tweet (remember, they have a separate account for bridge updates now), the low bridge is closed to traffic right now. (The camera that’s been showing it lately is offline, so it’s not in our highlight boxes above.)
7:38 AM: Open again. All’s still relatively quiet out there otherwise. By the way, last night’s Morgan Community Association meeting included an update on the overflow-tank project at Lowman Beach that’s been generating extra double-dump-truck trips lately – the dig is halfway down and is still on track for completion in early November.
