    Traffic backed up to almost 42nd heading towards Faultenroy. Assuming a wreck or stall

      Thanks – still no official reports/alerts

      Could it be related to the lane closures on 35th?

        Based on the comments on a previous WSB story, it seems like the impacts of that project have been big.  And it seems like people have been looking for alternate routes.  Yesterday,  Delridge’s southbound traffic was very slow stop and go from STEM thru to Delridge / Orchard just before 5pm.

    Yep, it’s still a mess on Fauntleroy.

    Some kind of work being set up on Sylvan next to Sylvan Ridge and the lower side of the cemetery. Any info? I didn’t have any luck in a search.

      Hopefully repairs to the section that feels like an off-road course?(but that section is further west/ north than the location you seem to be suggesting.)

    Traffic has been so terrible this week, especially AM commute today. This 35th road closure is messing up traffic flow everywhere through west Seattle it seems. Feeling frustrated. How can we complain to the city?
