TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, ROAD WORK: Tuesday notes, 17th week of West Seattle Bridge closure

6:03 AM: It’s Tuesday, the 118th morning without the high-rise West Seattle Bridge.


Major work continues on Delridge Way, with lane reductions, as road-rebuilding and utility work lead off the RapidRide H Line conversion project – here’s what crews are working on this week;.


Here’s the 5-way intersection camera (Spokane/West Marginal/Delridge/Sppkane/Chelan):

Here’s the restricted-daytime-access (open to all 9 pm-5 am) 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 this Sunday, July 19th. Meanwhile, here’s that camera:

The other major bridge across the river is the South Park Bridge (map). The camera was still down as of early today. P.S. Going through South Park? Don’t speed.

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, with the 773 and 775 shuttles – see the schedule here.

    Seattle Times reporting this morning that the low bridge has cracks too and will need repairs.

      That’s from the SDOT Blog and we have a story up. Unusual for SDOT (or almost any other agency) to post something at 7 am so we were caught a bit offguard, sorry.

Sorry, comment time is over.
