TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday alerts & updates

(SDOT MAP with travel times/video links; is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE)

(Click any view for a close-up; more cameras on the WSB Traffic page)

6:58 AM: One lane is reported blocked by a crash on the NB 1st Avenue South Bridge. And as promised, we’re off to check on the two lanes of NB 35th SW south of Avalon where torn-up pavement caused traffic trouble yesterday afternoon.

7:20 AM: Just checked. Yes, two lanes of 35th are still closed with torn-up pavement between Alaska and Avalon. This will be a bottleneck, albeit a relatively short one.

7:34 AM: The 1st Ave. S. Bridge crash has cleared.

10:53 AM: SDOT says the pavement work will continue into tomorrow. Separate update ahead.

    Hey, SDOT thinks 35th should only have one traffic lane each direction so this won’t be a problem, right?

    …sorry – couldn’t pass up the sarcasm

      As also noted in discussion following last night’s story about this, this section of 35th SW has never been part of SDOT’s rechannelization proposal – nothing north of Edmunds, because of traffic volumes.

    Edmunds is only 2 blocks south though, so it seems like this would be a somewhat accurate preview of the rechannelization.

      That’s not my point in making note of it, whether it would have a similar effect or not. Accuracy is vital in comments as well as stories, because they get indexed too. Working on a 35th update, by the way, for today or tomorrow.

    Would have appreciated the lane closure signs at the top of the hill when traveling north so you could plan accordingly instead of going over the crest of the hill and there is the lane closure with little warning. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
