ROAD WORK, TRANSIT, TRAFFIC: Tuesday notes, 15th week of West Seattle Bridge closure

6:07 AM: Good morning – the 99th morning without the high-rise West Seattle Bridge.


Lane reductions continue for the Delridge Way project – here are the key points of this week’s work.


Here are the cameras for the 5-way intersection, and the restricted-access low bridge just east of it:

The main detour route across the Duwamish River is the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map) – which has up to 14 overnight closures planned next month. Meanwhile, here’s that camera:

The other major bridge across the river is the South Park Bridge (map) – this camera shows the SP-side approach:

If you’re going through South Park, neighbors have a message for you:

P.S. Check the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed for info about any of those bridges opening for marine traffic.

You can see all local traffic cams here; locally relevant cameras are also shown on this WSB page.


Metro – Some service has been restored – details here.

Water Taxi – Some service has been restored on the WT too, plus the 773 and 775 shuttles – see the schedule here.

Holiday note – Since July 4th is on Saturday, Independence Day will be observed Friday – that means no Water Taxi, and Metro’s on its Sunday schedule.

Trouble on the roads/paths/water? Let us know – text (but not if you’re driving!) 206-293-6302.

    505 weeks to go until the West Seattle Bridge issue is solved and operational

    Delridge Way Construction: no traffic control, workers & equipment wandering into traffic. Adult supervision is needed here or somebody’s going to get hurt.

      If that is the case, call Labor and Industries to report it; they generally respond very quickly.

Sorry, comment time is over.
