ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC, TRANSIT: Thursday notes, 16th week of West Seattle Bridge closure

6:16 AM: It’s Thursday, the 108th morning without the high-rise West Seattle Bridge.


Several locations on Delridge Way have lane reductions as the RapidRide H Line conversion project continues – here’s what crews are working on this week.


Here’s the camera for the restricted-daytime-access low bridge:

The main detour route across the Duwamish River is the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map) – which has up to 14 overnight closures planned later this 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:

Going through South Park? Neighbors need you to slow down.

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.

    Wow! And it feels like at least the 108th morning without the bridge!

    Going thru South Park…  neighbors need you to slow down.Sorry South Park…   this is your part of the price of the bridge being down.

      No, people speeding on side streets is NOT “their part of the price.” Nobody HAS to speed ANYWHERE. They’re not asking people to stay out, they’re asking them not to drive unsafely, breaking the law. Easy to oblige.

    Thank you WSB!!Traffic host neighborhoods need everyone to just slow it down and stay calm! We are all in this together. South Park to Highland Park – we can help everyone get there if folks treat every street like their own! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
