(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! With the temperature in the low 40s, it’s almost a heat wave out there. As for traffic – SDOT reported a crash at 31st SW/SW Cloverdale a short time ago, but SFD has already closed out of the call.

7:20 AM: Sound Transit says its express buses, including West Seattle-serving Route 560, are all running about 20 minutes behind due to “heavy traffic.”

7:51 AM: Charlie reports, “I’m on a rt 57 right now. Firefighters blocking the bus lane on 99. Helping someone in a stopped vehicle. Just north of the Starbucks building.”

8:14 AM SDOT says the 99 situation has cleared.

    Is there any information on the roadwork on 35th Ave between Brandon and Dawson?  It has 35th reduced to one lane in either direction and the work seems like it has been done since Friday.

      Can you tell where the crew is from – or are you saying, no crew is there but there’s closures? Nothing announced. But there’s been ongoing utility work, well, forever.

        I haven’t seen a crew there since late last week but there are still large lighted signs veering traffic away from the center lanes and the area’s surrounded by cones, etc..  It looks like there was some large patch work done that, from what I can tell, is all completed.

          I would suggest calling 206-684-ROAD to make sure it’s on SDOT’s radar – they would have access to whatever permit was granted (assuming it wasn’t unannounced SDOT work) and they would be able to contact whomever is responsible. – TR

            Thanks for the number.  If I still see it later today during my afternoon commute back home, I’ll dial and see what’s up.  Also, it just occurred to me that it might have not been finalized / removed yesterday due to the MLK holiday.

            I almost forgot to report back.  Everything seems to be gone as of late afternoon.  The lanes are reopened.
