TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Wednesday updates & road-work alerts

(Four WS-relevant views – more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Good morning. No incidents so far, but we do have road-work alerts:

ARBOR HEIGHTS MICROSURFACING: Starts today – see the map and announcement here.

49TH SW CLOSURE: Seattle Public Utilities is closing 49th SW between Edmunds and Alaska for sewer repairs.

48TH SW CLOSURE STARTING TOMORROW: Another project announced by SPU starts tomorrow:

Beginning September 10, Seattle Public Utilities will repair sewer lines on 48th Avenue SW between SW Juneau Street and SW Raymond Street. This work will require closing 48th Avenue SW to through traffic. Local access will be available with the assistance of a traffic flagger. Work may take up to five days to complete with hours from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The lanes will remain closed for the duration of work hours, and will be opened to traffic after non-work hours. Metro bus 37 will run as normal.

35TH SW PAVING STARTING TOMORROW: Preparation for SDOT‘s 35th and Roxbury rechannelization work continues, and starting tomorrow, 35th will be repaved between SW Cambridge and SW Barton – here’s that announcement.

Also, though Seattle Public Schools are NOT opening today because of the Seattle Education Association strike announced last night – with picketing planned at all SPS campuses 8:30 am-3 pm today – some independent schools do start the year today:

BACK TO SCHOOL: This is the first day at the new Westside School campus (34th SW & SW 104th) as well as Explorer West Middle School (10015 28th SW) and West Seattle Montessori (11215 15th SW); all three are WSB sponsors.

    Wow the brdge eastbound is bad. Maybe something on north I5 is the cause? Haven’t seen any accidents or stalls. No talk radio reports of issues. Left home 40 minutes ago still not to i5

    And the Fauntleroy traffic message board was turned off so there’s no warning whatsoever. Lame.

    It took me almost an hour to get to downtown via the bridge to 99. There was a disabled vehicle plus tow truck and police in the curves in the tunnel construction area. They aren’t blocking the lanes but must have been before I got to that point.

    And the traffic cameras are sporadic at best

Sorry, comment time is over.
