8:40 AM: We started coverage of this in the morning traffic roundup but it’ll be a mess for a while so we’re breaking it out: That dump-truck wreck on the West Seattle Bridge has the westbound side closed at Delridge and is blocking lanes on the eastbound side too.
8:43 AM: The westbound bridge closure is now expanding even further, according to scanner traffic.
8:55 AM: Thanks for all the photos (and the original tips, too, when this all started half an hour ago).
Radio communication indicates SPD is now closing the bridge BOTH WAYS.
9:04 AM: SDOT confirms “West Seattle Bridge is fully closed in both directions between Fauntleroy Way SW and I-5.”
9:17 AM: Per radio communication, the bridge will reopen both ways “up to the scene of the collision.” … But that may be on hold for a bit while they empty the truck’s fuel tanks.
9:36 AM: Here’s the current view looking EB – westbound lanes open but jammed, eastbound still empty.
Our page with the latest traffic-cam views around the area is here.
9:40 AM: Just heard back from SFD. No injuries reported in this crash.
9:52 AM: Cameras show some eastbound traffic now on the bridge, and cleanup work continuing at scene of crash (which happened about an hour and a half ago).
Per radio communication, one complicating factor right now is diesel fuel in the eastbound lanes at the scene.
10:33 AM: Two lanes are now open eastbound per radio communication; WB is still being detoured off at Delridge.
NOON: Camera shows westbound now open past Delridge. (SDOT confirms, but not ALL lanes yet.)
12:36 PM: From Metro – “routes 50, 120, 125 and RapidRide C Line have resumed regular service along the West Seattle Bridge.”
1 PM: And now – “a collision on the SW Admiral Way Off Ramp from West Seattle Bridge WB” as tweeted by SDOT.
1:23 PM: Now that’s been upgraded to a “rescue extrication” response so we’re breaking it out (story here).
2:10 PM: The repair crew has finally cleared the dump-truck crash scene but the inside lane remains coned off there – we noted this just before SDOT turned the camera the other way.
4:17 PM: We had asked SPD if anyone was cited. So far, no. That and some other new details just emerged in this SPD Blotter post; contrary to what SFD told us, SPD said the driver did suffer minor injuries, and also says debris from the crash damaged two other vehicles.
