TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Pre-holiday Monday updates

(Four WS-relevant views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
6:21 AM: Good morning! Quiet in the early going as we start the week leading up to the three-day 4th of July holiday weekend. We’ll take a closer look at holiday changes as the week proceeds, but, for example, if you’re working Friday (July 3rd), keep in mind that Metro will be on a Sunday schedule that day.

8:41 AM: It’s been a very quiet commute, at least in our area. Our occasional reminder: If you see something along the way that might affect how people are getting around, please let us know, when you can do so safely/legally (if you’re commuting solo, a text or call when you get to your destination, for example) – 206-293-6302 is our around-the-clock hotline – we monitor a variety of sources and yet sometimes an incident of significance doesn’t show up in those channels, and one call/tip makes a difference. Thank you!

2:44 PM: Thanks to Sam for sharing info about this in comments, saying it’s affecting the bottom of Admiral too:

We’ll be heading over to check, and will also watch for updates from SDOT.

3:51 PM: Our crew checked and didn’t spot any sign of trouble, at least at the Admiral/Avalon surface under the bridge. No update from SDOT re: bridge surface itself.

    Afternoon traffic quick heads up:
    Westbound Admiral down at the bridge entrance appears to be covered with some substance making the pavement darker and slippery. A pickup truck behind me did a tail spin 180 on that ramp and continued in reverse before other cars arrived.

    I continued to the bridge seeing a van stopped on the shoulder at 99 with a man checking the rear tires. Front wheel drive would swing in that curve for sure.

    I called 911 to report the accident and the road condition. Maybe you can go check it out, the road surface is weird at the bottom of Admiral.

    Substance spill in center lane of EB West Seattle Bridge from Avalon to mid-span. Crews are en route. Use caution.

      Thanks, Sam.

      We checked – all clear, at least under the bridge Admiral/Avalon. Please let us know if anybody spots anything ON the bridge … SDOT has not updated, otherwise.

    Oops! correction this was going ‘Eastbound’.

    Lol, could hit people on the outbound. Still, odd indeed.
    So, @seattledot @SeattlePD just saw a guy doing Yoga in the North Bound lanes of the Battery Street Tunnel. Causing major delays. #Odd
