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

6:07 AM: It’s Friday, the 109th morning without the high-rise West Seattle Bridge.


Major work continues on Delridge Way, with lane reductions, as the RapidRide H Line conversion project continues – here’s what crews are working on this week; look for next week’s preview later today.


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 to start mid-July. 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? Don’t speed.

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 – Still reduced service and distancing – details here.

Water Taxi – Back to its “winter” schedule, plus the 773 and 775 shuttles – see the schedule here.

    Did I also see something about Michigan being closed down at 4th Avenue starting this evening? Sorry, I didn’t pay close attention to the sign when I drove by just now.
