TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: No-school Friday watch, and weekend reminders

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

6:57 AM: Good morning! No incidents or alerts so far.

NO SCHOOL: In-service day at Seattle Public Schools, so no classes.

99 & TUNNEL CLOSURES: As announced by WSDOT, NB 99 will close from 11 pm tonight to 4 am Monday (we’ll report if it reopens early), from the West Seattle Bridge to the north end of the tunnel. And the SB tunnel will close overnight tonight, 10 pm to 8 am.

BUS LANE WORK: During the NB 99 closure, as we reported earlier this week, SDOT says it will be “adjusting” the NB 99 bus lane. (added)

LIGHT-RAIL NOTE: All weekend, the line downtown is shut down, replaced by bus service, SODO to Capitol Hill.

    Man, I thought that when we got this fancy new 99 tunnel, we’d be done with the weekend closures.  Seems like there are just as many closures now, as there used to be for inspections of the crumbling viaduct, and marathons….

      I, for one, am glad they are keeping up with the maintenance on the tunnel. Of course it’s going to be closed periodically. So was the Battery Street Tunnel.

    No School, …  the school zone flashing lights must have missed the memo!

Sorry, comment time is over.
