6:50 AM: Good morning! Post-Summer Fest cleanup concluded overnight and Junction streets are open again, with bus routes back to normal. Also, no incidents in/from West Seattle so far; regional reports say traffic volumes are a little lower than usual.

BRIDGE CLOSURE TONIGHT: As announced last week, the west end of the bridge will close overnight tonight, starting at 9 pm and reopening by 5 am, for a round of followup after the re-replacement of more than 600 earthquake-safety cushions beneath the Fauntleroy Expressway section.

8:56 AM – ONE MORE OVERNIGHT ALERT: From WSDOT – Concrete-panel work on I-90 between I-5 and Lake Washington will bring these closures this week:

Monday, July 11, to the morning of Wednesday, July 13
Each night from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, crews will close the ramp from northbound I-5 to eastbound I-90.

Wednesday, July 13, to the morning of Friday, July 15
Each night from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, crews will close the ramp from southbound I-5 to eastbound I-90.

    Not West Seattle but noteworthy that East Marginal will be closed Saturday and Sunday 7/16-17 from 16th Ave S (South Park Bridge) to the Museum of Flight area (don’t know the cross street). Might be worth a heads up for folks that use the South Park Bridge corridor to go south on weekends.

      Thanks, Tricky. Where did you see that? I just checked the Seattle and King County road-work-alert lists and can’t find it, but would definitely want to include it. (Did learn via the KC Roads site that they have a few additional White Center traffic cams … which we’ll add to WCN, glad to discover them.)

        Reader board on the street in front of the Boeing Store on East Marginal as well as in Centennial FAQs at work. It’s related to the Boeing Centennial and might be in Tukwilla’s jurisdiction. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
