5:53 AM: Good morning – the 67th morning without the high-rise West Seattle Bridge. We start with two traffic reminders – #1, SW Roxbury repaving between 16th and 18th continues. We went by late yesterday – the new pavement is done in the eastbound lanes, so the westbound side is next:

Reminder #2 – the low bridge will be closed to ALL users (including bicycle riders and people on foot) tonight 8 pm-5 am, Saturday night 6 pm-3 am, and – if needed – Sunday night 6 pm-3 am. Details here.
Back to this morning’s traffic – here are the cameras for the 5-way intersection at West Marginal/Delridge/Spokane/Chelan, and the restricted-access low bridge:
