TRAFFIC ALERT UPDATE: NB 99 reopens south of South Park

12:48 PM: This has been discussed in comments on our morning traffic post but afternoon is here and it’s still not resolved, so we’re mentioning it: NB Highway 99 is still closed at Des Moines Memorial Drive just south of South Park [map]. Information is scant but witnesses on Twitter say it’s a standoff with a person on the overpass there, and it’s been under way for four hours. So if you’re headed this way from points south, you’ll want an alternate route.

12:53 PM: Moments after we published that, WSDOT sent an alert saying the highway has reopened.

    It’s over now, traffic is moving again.

      Yup, as noted above, literally a few minutes after I published it, this was resolved. Agencies involved are outside our usual monitoring so I don’t know how, but checking.

    Odd because I drove under the overpass southbound while northbound was closed.

    Traffic at a stand still. It’s 2:32. Headed north bound on 99. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
