7:30 AM: Good morning. The sunshine’s back; it’s been a morning free of major incidents in/from West Seattle.
BRIDGE CLOSURE TONIGHT: The second overnight closure of the west end of the high bridge is scheduled for tonight, 9 pm-5 am, as part of the Fauntleroy Expressway seismic-cushion-re-replacement project; the 35th/Fauntleroy entrance to the eastbound bridge will be off-limits, so you’ll have to get on at Harbor/Avalon or Delridge; if you’re headed westbound, you’ll have to exit by Delridge.
NOTES FOR FERRY USERS: First, if you board via Fauntleroy, be aware of this change starting next Monday. Second, if you’re out there today, watch for whales – check this tweet:

We also had a tip about whales yesterday, though not quite so early.
9:05 AM: Crash on the eastbound bridge at the 99 exit. “Gridlocked,” reports Randall.
9:15 AM: SDOT says the crash is cleared. But as the advisory goes, “residual backup” might take a while to do the same.
