UPDATE: Crash near west end of westbound West Seattle Bridge

1:14 PM: Thanks for the tips and photos – that crash is blocking a lane on the westbound West Seattle Bridge toward the Fauntleroy end. No word of major injuries, but the texter who sent that photo says the barrier is damaged, which usually means extra time to rearrange it, at the very least.

1:45 PM: Per radio communications, sounds like it’ll be a while before the barrier is replaced. SDOT says the inside eastbound lane is blocked as well as the inside westbound lane.

3:45 PM: SDOT says all’s clear now.

    Saw the flares out east bound yesterday while they were working the barrier.  It was fixed when I came back West bound at 3:45.  The flares we’re still lit, in the street, with people driving over the LIT flares….  Shouldn’t SPD and /or SDOT put them out before they leave the scene.  Next headline…major car fire on WS Bridge…  Or people should go around them…

    How do you put out a flare?  The ones we used to use were a chemical reaction burn.  I agree though, if the flares were no longer needed they should have been kicked to a safe place to the side.

Sorry, comment time is over.
