TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: July’s last Tuesday

(SDOT MAP with travel times/ Is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE/ West Seattle-relevant traffic cams HERE)

6:59 AM: Good morning. No transit alerts or traffic incidents reported in our area so far.

WATER TAXI: Some readers pointed out that the smaller Spirit of Kingston was on the West Seattle run yesterday, unannounced, and that led to some capacity challenges. So we checked this morning and it shows SoK on the run again this morning.

REMINDER FOR LATER THIS WEEK: The NB Highway 99 tunnel is scheduled to be closed 11 pm Friday-noon Sunday for “joint and pavement repairs.”

    The tunnel just opened in February. Repairs already?

      You don’t think half a million trips a week would cause any wear and tear over the last few months?

        True, but that tunnel road surface seemed flawed to begin with, like the Spokane viaduct from a few years ago.

        No, not on a brand new roadway I wouldn’t.

        No would expect roadway to last much longer than  6 months  before needing repairs-unless like someone else mentioned it was flawed to begin with.

    Wow!!! Repair the POS waste of money tunnel already? And why are there not three lanes leading up to and through the tunnel? There is an on-ramp at the start and off ramp at the end, why did they not make it 3 lanes? It’s horrible at rush hour 

Sorry, comment time is over.
