TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Tuesday updates; Admiral Way paving

(Four WS-relevant views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Good morning. No trouble spots in our vicinity so far. One big road-work reminder:

ADMIRAL WAY PAVING: SDOT will be working between Olga and 34th, starting around 7 am, just south of Admiral Way Viewpoint. They’re hoping to finish the work in just one day, according to the update we published Monday, and expect to keep one lane open each way.

Looking further ahead:

HIGHWAY 99 CLOSURE ON SUNDAY MORNING: One more thing to add to the lookahead list we included here yesterday – the Hot Chocolate 5K/15K will close part of Highway 99 just north of downtown for a few hours on Sunday morning. Details are in this update from SDOT.

7:11 AM: Checking travel times from the city map – these are from the Admiral Way hill:

SR-99 Offramp 4 min.
1st Ave Offramp 5 min.
4th Ave Offramp 6 min.
I-5 NB/SB 6 min.
Stadiums via 1st Ave 8 min.
Stadiums via 4th Ave 10 min.
South Lake Union 14 min
Lower Queen Anne 16 min.
Green Lake via SR-99 21 min.

    Do you know what day they will working on Admiral Way? I did not see any action this morning at 7:15.

      SDOT told us yesterday that the work would be done today. We’re just about to head that way to check. The equipment was on site as of yesterday afternoon – I drove by a few times while checking out various things (was not in a convenient place to get a photo, though)!

        Update: Yes, they’re working. Not the entire roadway – two sections.

    This reminded me just what I thought of asking WSB on my way in this morning! The travel times on the board I pass on Fauntleroy are rarely accurate. Today’s (around the time of the eta’s you posted) drive to 4th ave exit was more like 17 minutes than 6. How are they calculated anyway? Thanks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
