(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)

7:02 AM: Good morning. No incidents reported in or from West Seattle so far, but it’s a rainy morning following a rainy night, so please watch out for puddling (or worse) in some of the usual spots. (Via Twitter, Meg mentions Fauntleroy/Raymond.)

7:26 AM: If you’re at or near 35th/Avalon, you might be noticing multiple fire units on the west side of 35th. It’s an “automatic fire alarm” call at 4435 35th SW (Aura).

8 AM: Thanks for the tips. Emergency response at 47th and Genesee, possibly involving a bicycle rider. We are on our way to find out more.

8:25 AM: We’re at the scene. Westbound Genesee is closed at 46th. Eastbound is open. We’ll be writing about the incident separately shortly. (Here’s the link.)

8:38 AM: Police say Genesee will reopen shortly.

8:45 AM: If you haven’t headed out yet – it’s now raining very hard, so be ready to travel slowly to stay safe.

    Looks like you caught someone from SDOT on the cam:

      That’s from yesterday.  I hope or else someone needs to check on him.

        Yes, it was from yesterday. I don’t have time to look up the link again but I tweeted that photo shortly after a reader pointed it out in yesterday’s traffic coverage.

    Wow. Those people watchers sure are clear these days, you can almost make out license plate numbers.

    Nice view of an SDOT helmet at 8:57. :)

      I think the camera is now broken – sigh. I’ve had to change the views featured here several times in the past week as cameras fall into disrepair. Will find a substitute for this one.

Sorry, comment time is over.
