    First line says “sunny Wednesday” — I think it’s Thursday, but what do I know?

      Thanks, fixing.

    Huh, the map of the viaduct closure in the linked WSDOT page labels the West Seattle Bridge as the West Seattle /Freeway/.  I think that’s the first time I’ve heard that name used for the bridge.

      That was the old name for the Spokane St Viaduct – pre median
