TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Tuesday updates; Battery St. Tunnel reopens after crash closure

(WS high/low bridges and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
6:35 AM: We start with a problem affecting Northbound 99 – a crash has closed the northbound side of the Battery Street Tunnel.

6:55 AM: Still closed, no ETA announced for reopening. Seattle Fire was not dispatched to the crash, which indicates no one was hurt. Here’s the traffic cam that looks southward at the northbound traffic from just before the closure point:

7:08 AM: Per scanner, the tunnel is clear and about to be reopened. A stalled car nearby, though, might still complicate matters for a bit.

7:12 AM: Officially reopened, per SDOT.

7:33 AM: Avalon is “crawling,” reports WS Since 1979 in comments, just before the eastward turn to Spokane/bridge ramp.

    Starting to look like my express bus will have to take the 4th Ave S exit.

    Hello DOT. Tow?

    Traffic is crawling on Avalon Way before the turn onto Spokane St.

      Thanks. Nothing on 911 … maybe drainage trouble?

    Thanks for the humor! No seriously, I thought someone has said in comments that since 1979 Avalon had been crawling along, now I get it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
