(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; SDOT’s West Seattle Bridge cameras are down as of 7 am so we don’t have them so far this morning)

7:02 AM: Good morning! No incidents in/from West Seattle so far this morning. Roads are damp and temperatures are in the 40s.

7:12 AM: Looking ahead to next weekend, two notes: WSDOT is planning on another one of those major lane closures on eastbound I-90 just east of I-5, with details here; and Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 am Sunday (this is the time to “spring forward” one hour).

ADDED: Just for the record – Kevin tweeted this during the morning commute:

    Any history of law enforcement raising revenue on the Avalon bus lane?   I have seen them on the bridge, but not Avalon.

      I don’t recall having heard of any lately, but that doesn’t mean none happened … and SPD Blotter doesn’t send out those lists of “aggressive driver response team” results any more. BUT someone just e-mailed to say that, at least as of just after 4:30, police were out on Admiral Way hill north of the bridge …

    Wish SPD would enforce the bus lane on Avalon and down Spokane and then up on the bridge itself. It’s a joke right now. SPD would rather catch speeders on Admiral Hill? I have made a lot of requests over the years for bus lane enforcement so it’s not that someone is requesting Admiral Hill and no one is requsting the bus lane.

    I wish buses would stop running red lights, especially when turning left from Avalon to southbound 35th. As a bonus, cars behind buses follow too close and don’t realize the light is red, further delaying those trying to head east in the 1 lane between KFC and Taco Time. Horrible intersection that I avoid and I have tried to work with SDOT on it.

    I was driving down Avalon today in order to get to marginal way s. I was in the left lane (as I was supposed to be) and tried to get into the turn lane onto Spokane. One of the drivers who rode the bus lane for a quarter of a mile refused to let me in, cursed me out, and gave me the finger. Bold moves for a person who had just spent the past 10 minutes committing one long, slow moving violation.

Sorry, comment time is over.
