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

7:09 AM: Good morning! Only one incident reported in the area – if you head this way from points north, note that there’s a crash blocking one lane of southbound 99 at King St.

7:16 AM: That has cleared.

7:23 AM: If you use East Marginal Way to head to/from downtown, note there’s a crash response right where it becomes Alaskan Way near Massachusetts.

7:29 AM: SDOT says that crash is blocking SB lanes but not NB.

7:33 AM: From the scanner, trouble at 4th/Spokane, blocking a westbound lane there.

    Bus lane violators on the bridge and NB99 are getting braver

      I agree. Let’s let SPD know about it.

    I’ve seen bus lane  violations at all hours of the day since 1999.  Something needs to be done by the city. Enforce it or open it up to all. I’ve seen too many close calls and accidents with vehicles driving in and across the bus only lane.  In all those years despite letting SPD know, I’ve seen it enforced a dozen times in 20 years. Ridiculous something like this is allowed to fester this long. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
