TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Tuesday updates and reminders

(Four WS-relevant views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
7:12 AM: Metro says delays related to a crash downtown, in which a bus hit a pedestrian – who was not seriously hurt – are subsiding. No other incidents affecting this area so far.

FERRY REMINDER: M/V Salish continues on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run in place of the twice-the-vehicle-capacity M/V Issaquah, so delays are continuing.

SHORT SCHOOL DAY TOMORROW: Seattle Public Schools students have an early-release day tomorrow (Wednesday), and will be out two hours earlier than usual.

WEEKEND REMINDERS: Next Saturday and Sunday, the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed 6 am-6 pm each day for its twice-yearly inspection. And Saturday night is also when we’ll “fall back” an hour for the end of Daylight Saving Time.

8:10 AM: SDOT’s traffic center says an aid response on SW Morgan at Lanham might cause some delays. No word whether it’s eastbound or westbound.

8:54 AM: Some hope for the ferry run returning to normal soon:

    Routes to I5 n seem slower than normal. Left bridge lane and lower Spokane stopped from at least 1st ave.

    Just fyi neighbors I 5 is also stopped along Royal Brougham to I 5 north. Maybe the 7:12 bus / ped accident is still an issue?

      That was cleared before 7. Maybe residual backup from the Mercer Island I-90 trouble?

    Issaquah returns to service this afternoon:

    “The Issaquah will return to service with the 2:20pm sailing from Vashon to Fauntleroy.”

      Thanks! Just saw that in e-mail, am updating above.

    I heard on the radio later that there was a disabled vehicle near Mercer. Apparently I was the only one stuck in it though..

Sorry, comment time is over.
