ADMIRAL ALERT: Crews worked late into the night at the bottom of the Admiral Way hill, just north of the bridge, at the scene of a water-line break. From the comment thread on our afternoon/evening story, Val has the first report on this morning’s conditions:
Went through there southbound just before 3:00 am and all the work has been completed. Northbound lanes have a couple of rough, bumpy patches in them but otherwise everything looked open. There has been an attempt at sanding and salting or whatever it is we use around here but it was still icy. Today more than ever slow down if you are coming down the hill. Hit the turn to Avalon or the curved on ramp and under 20 and you should be fine. It’s not even supposed to get to 40 degrees today so the ice in this area might be there a couple of days.
We’re headed over shortly for a look.
8:20 AM: Here’s an Instagram video cliplet (:15) how it looks as you head downhill there, which we just did:
Also from north West Seattle, another road-ice report, via Twitter:
