(Four WS-relevant views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
7:07 AM: If you’re heading out through the Admiral District, be aware of a car-fire dispatch for SFD at 42nd/Admiral. We don’t know what side of the intersection. Also of note this morning:

SW WAITE CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC: At the 47th/Admiral signal/crosswalk project, as announced by the city last week, SW Waite is scheduled to be closed to through traffic all week.

WATER TAXI SCHEDULE CHANGE: The West Seattle Water Taxi is now on its spring/summer schedule, which runs all day, 7 days a week.

M’S GAME TODAY: SODO and Pioneer Square will be busier than usual before and after the Opening Day baseball game at Safeco Field, which is an afternoon game, 1:10 pm start.

SPRING BREAK: Parochial schools are out this week (public schools’ spring break isn’t until next week).

7:54 AM: The Admiral car-fire response is closed. Meantime, police are on the Highland Park Way hill at Othello with a stalled vehicle – direction not reported.

8:48 AM: Big truck traffic for the port, we’re hearing via scanner, on East Marginal Way and other spots.

    Stupid sign hanging from pedestrian walkway over West Seattle bridge east – weighted at bottom by gallon milk cartons hanging over roadway.

    Anyone know why it’s next-near to impossible to get off of Harbor Island?

      Is it truck traffic? When we mentioned it earlier this morning, it was backed up but police didn’t expect to need special traffic control – maybe that’s changed?

    It’s taking at least 30-45 minutes (if not more) just to get off the Island.

Sorry, comment time is over.
