TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Friday watch, post-Thanksgiving

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

6:16 AM: Good morning! What you need to know to get going:

*Metro‘s on a “reduced weekday” schedule
*King County Water Taxi is not running today
*Sound Transit: Express buses on weekday schedule, light rail on Saturday schedule
*Street closures and bus reroutes downtown for Macy’s Holiday Parade and star lighting, at 9 am and 5 pm respectively
*Street parking in pay-station areas is NOT free today

8:29 AM: Bridge is wide open – we’re eastbound to cover local parade participants downtown -but beware of a stalled trash/recycling truck in the outside lane at the crest.

    Missing buses on the 56/57 route. I have been stand in sub-freezing temps for about 25 minutes.

    Shortly after I wrote the above, the 56 showed up. When I got downtown I saw a 56 and a 57 following closely behind. So, not missing, just very late buses in sub-freezing temps with no notifications.
