TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Wednesday watch; bridge crash

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

6:59 AM: Good morning. No incidents or traffic alerts in/from West Seattle so far.

Later today:

STUDENT WALKOUTS: If you’re going to be near a middle/high school at 10 am, remember these are expected to happen, as previewed here. The only plan we’ve heard of that’s likely to affect traffic is at Chief Sealth IHS/Denny IMS, where participating students say they’ll be walking to Southwest Athletic Complex across SW Thistle.

ENCAMPMENT CLEANUP: The city and WSDOT are expected to be working on the slope over Highway 509, east of Myers Way, which could mean vehicles on the shoulder of the southbound side.

8:59 AM: Via scanner, police are on their way to check out a collision reported “eastbound, mid-span” on the West Seattle Bridge.

9:04 AM: One person is reported to be hurt.

    The #57 that leaves California & Admiral never came. No notice.

      It did… just really late. It had a trainee driver that was really tentative dealing with the usual WS traffic into downtown. The 56 that follows actually passed us where they merge off of the WS bridge over to the ramp going to 99.

        that doesn’t make sense, though. Unless you mean the following, following 56. I was on the 56 that should have arrived at admiral at 7:08. We did not pass the 57 and everyone at my stop that was waiting for the 57 was on that 56.  We did not get an alert.

          If you are talking about the 6:55 Route 57, it arrived right after the 56. The 57 had a driver in training and was running late.

    Lower bridge has been stopped/open for at least 15 mins as of 730

    Just opened 731

Sorry, comment time is over.
