6:52 AM: Good morning! No major incidents in/from West Seattle so far. Now that it’s Thursday, it’s time to look ahead to the weekend, including:

ROAD CLOSURE FOR JUBILEE DAYS STREET FAIR: Saturday and Sunday, 17th SW between Roxbury and 100th will be closed for the White Center Jubilee Days street fair.

METRO 120 REROUTE FOR SUNDAY PARADE: The Jubilee Days parade on Sunday (July 17th) will bring a reroute of the 120 between 10 am and 1 pm, on 16th SW from SW 100th south to SW 116th – details here.

BOEING CENTENNIAL: In comments earlier this week, “Trickycoolj” mentioned signage for the East Marginal Way closure south of the South Park Bridge this weekend because of the Boeing Centennial festivities. Still haven’t found anything official, likely because the celebration is not a public event, but better forewarned than not.

8:01 AM: Still quiet. Checked the West Seattle-vicinity live video feeds from the SDOT “travelers’ information map” to verify.

8:35 AM: Trouble on the eastbound high bridge. Just in from SDOT:

(Thanks also to Matt and Mike for telling us about this crash.)

8:55 AM: Also a crash on the northbound 1st Avenue South Bridge.

8:58 AM: Just checked in on the camera. West Seattle Bridge crash still blocking the center eastbound lane right after the curve. Police and incident response are there.

    For the East Marginal Way, yes it is closing Sat and Sunday around Flight Museum for the 100 Year Boeing Centennial Celebration. Not sure why they are closing both ways for both days.  The CEO of Boeing, Dennis Muilenburg will be here on Friday to do a speech, reason they are setting up the stage next door to Flight Museum.

      Oh, I believe it. Just wish it was in writing somewhere for easy linking!

    And it is a private event, by invitation only.   It’s states that on the Flight Museum website and we employees at Boeing were invited, but you had to register to be admitted to the celebration.

Sorry, comment time is over.
